Moab Trip April 2012

The boys went later this year to Moab to try and get some warmer weather and they were pretty lucky!

Here is the crew (both Alpha and Bravo groups)...
 They were able to stay a little longer and of course got some awesome scenery shots!
 Greta shot of Mike!
 The new trail called the Magnificient 7!

Aguirre Springs Practice

Mike and I took a little trip to Aguirre Springs on our bikes to practice for the road race. Road biking is so hard!  Aguirre takes no prisoners!

 Mike taking a rest and making it look easy!
Cool shot of the road back.  I was having a hard time with the downhills.  I did learn on race day that I do bette ron downhill when I have a group of people to chase!

Trifecta Omnium in Las Cruces

Kind of bummed we didn't get a lot of pictures of the local road race here.  Mike was able to place fifth in the time trial and rocked it, even though it was SNOWING while he did it.  He had to unclip at the turn and we think he would have placed higher if his turn was smoother.

This is the picture of the crit race, the same day.  He was able to stay with the team and Zia Velo came in for a win for the Category 5 racers!

This was my first road race on my road bike and it took place in Hillsboro, NM (about an hour and a half outside of town)...we seriously did not get a single picture of that day!  Mike paced 25th and I placed 12th.  I was riding by myself for half of the 32 miles I rode, so I was hurting!

Good times.  I would do it again!

Mike's Birthday Weekend

I was going to be in Vegas for Mike's birthday and I felt a little bad so I decided to make a special weekend for him in Las Cruces.  We decided to have a "staycation" and stay at a nice Holiday Inn Express here in town.  It ain't no Mandalay Bay, but it was pretty nice and had an awesome hot tub and work out room!

Mike was able to hot tub before watching "The Walking Dead" finale and then we went out for ice cream right after.  The next morning I made an appointment for him to get a massage at Massage Envy.

Staycations rock!
