best teammates ever!

So, yesterday, a few of us decided to race the Altamont TTT. I raced with Marsha, Sue and Katie. We were a combined 3/4 team racing in the 3's category. We had another team with Liz, Erika, Cammie and Andrea in the 1-2s.

I didn't have a really good day yesterday. I think I was really fighting the cold. It was around 40 degrees or maybe even a bit cooler, and I never really felt loose - even after a 1 hour warmup. But, my teammates, true to their word, stuck with me - even though they probably could have gotten 1st or 2nd if they'd just left me behind. Instead, they were selfless and blocked the wind two-up on the hilly sections so I could catch a breath. What sweet, encouraging teammates. You guys rock! All-in-all it was a fun day, and we even got some quality riding time with the boys afterward on the Wente road race course.

And, of course, there was a posedown complete with cupcakes, Bella style. And, due to the small turnout, there were prizes all around. What a fun day! Thanks all.
