The astute reader will recall that Haley had a very brief flu about a week ago. With a week, Kelly and I thought we were probably safe to go ahead with our trip to Zion. Unfortunately, it didn’t work out that way and after less than a day at camp, I went into full-on ill mode. Kelly had to take down the campsite by herself with the kids scrambling all over while I writhed in agony with occasional vomit breaks. Then, she got to drive home while I sat there in silence the whole way. We got home around 10 at night, and by 1 she was harfing as well. Not the way I hoped to spend my precious few vacation days!!
By Saturday, I was pretty good and she was beginning the recovery process so I took the girls out for a ride with Uncle Sleevie. We found me dragging the rikshaw allowed him to ride at a pace that rested his knee, while I got a good work-out touring the farmlands south of the Prove. Sleev-o’s big day is coming up and boy am I excited. I think I am pretty girly when it comes to weddings and stuff. Or at least, I like it an awful lot when good things happen to my friends.
Sunday was pretty chill. We went up to Cascade Springs, a natural spring that has viewing areas and a walkway around it. Pretty serene and the girls loved looking at the fish, and waterfalls. Watched USPro after that on Versus. It was pretty decent coverage, although the only good shot of T-Bird was George Hincapie working him over. Neil Shirley’s ride inspired me and I took the girls out for another ride.
In other news, I got into the World Crit Championships, so I guess I should try to get fast in a hurry or something.
Speaking of fast, big Sis was 3rd in her age group in her tri over the weekend. Apparently, it was frustrating to her that folks were coasting downhills on their tri bikes while she pedalled furiously on her hybrid!
Cameron won Lotoja, but master of master’s Mark had the best time. Kirk was 2nd this year, so no more statues in Logan at least for this year.
I guess that’s it for the moment.
