never the bride. Now I could be cynical and whiny right now but I choose to be thankful. I finished 3rd in the Southwest Challenge Series. You have to do at least 8 races in the series and then you get to count the top 8 races in points for for your place. So even though I did the most races, got the most points, since I got some 2nds and 3rds, I got 3rd place. I am a little peeved about this since I trained my butt off this year but it goes to show that those of us that do not have the genetic gift of winning every race we do, have to work our butts off and still get the bronze. I won't be doing the series next year so now I will just have to wait until the next age group and hope those other women decide that knitting is more fun..
Now the thankful part-I do get an award! I am healthy, strong and did have some good PRs in there. Also my wonderful newbie hubby won first place in his age group. Yay Hartley!
So I will go to the ceremony and smile and be happy nevertheless..
We are off to S.t Louis today for a wedding of a daughter of a friend. I need to get out of my playclothes and actually put on a dress!
