I finally caught up to my racing age from last year for CX. I guess it was inevitable. I feel I am in a great place for my age. Happy, healthy and having a blast. Awesome weekend of celebrating and doing so many things I love. It's really not that bad turning 40. Embrace it. The alternative sucks.
Great weekend. Started out with an overnight at the cabin, despite the smoke and fire. It was fabulous & much needed to lower the stress levels from prepping for cx. Had a great meal and time on deck, followed by a great ride on Saturday. Then a sunset beach dinner on the sandbar in Hood River. Never done that before.

|SAD! Won't spend too many more weekends here during cx. I'll sneak away during the week.|

We headed home and then woke up Sunday for some hot, dusty cx racing and then a party in the evening. It was great fun. I have amazing friends and they made it stress free for me. Monday, my actual birthday, I had some business to take care of, but hung out with Pam and her kids, even though brunch was not to be.

|Me in all my glory. I know. Pretty funny. There were some doozies.|
|The youngest guest at the party. Axel Weaver!|
|It's good to be loved.|
|Proof I can do one pull up. But that was it. Just one. Weak sauce.|
|And the laughter continued...|
My husband treated me to an amazing evening of good wine, a beautiful Jill Platner necklace to commemorate turning old and dinner at Laurelhurst Cafe. One of our favorite splurges. Followed up by wine on the roof after packing bikes for Vegas. A girl has to work too, you know. Thanks to all who helped me turn 40. It was great.
