Kiddie Kross – Cyclocross at Barnes Park

With her older brothers to compete with, our 8 year old gave it a shot. One lap around the full course. Here we see her feet pumping furiously through the sand pit. Afterward she shook several ounces of sand out of her keen sandals. Will she continue in later years?

Our 12 year old took part in the race at Barnes Park on Nov. 7. Here’s a shot of him approaching the barriers. I look forward to him racing for FFKR as well next year.

Flagstaff VK Tshirt Reveal

Got my shirt from the Flagstaff VK a couple weeks ago, but it took a while to get around to making this box opening video. Well, envelope opening. So here you go, my Flagstaff Skyrace Tshirt out of the wrapper.

When I registered on that Friday morning they told me there was some confusion in the shirt order and that they would be available for pickup at the store in Flagstaff at 3 PM, about 3 hours after the run. I had to get back home for a cyclocross race the next morning, so it would be really difficult to make that pickup and then get home much before 2 AM.

After the run they handed me a commemorative glass and said the shirts were even slower than expected, so they might not be available until 7 PM. I asked if they could mail it, and she said sure. So I took off for home. About a week later the shirt arrived and sat at my desk while I adjusted to my new job in my new office with my new training schedule.

Here it is, and along with it, my new training main goal.
