Tour de Welsh Hills... chalk it up!

Back into it after a nice easy week... and I found myself racing again. A race close by my house, about 30 minutes away and on Mother's Day. Had a long weekend as Saturday Tara and I drove to Buffalo to surprise her mom for Mother's Day.. hung out with them for a while, threw some money around at the black jack table, then drove home. About 11 hours total in the car and got home around 2:30 in the morning. So needless to say I wasn't on my "A" game today but it worked out well. The course was a 5 mile circuit with rolling hills and 1 little climb up to the finish. I tried to get away a couple times up the biggest hill but no one would let me go anywhere and just chased me all day. I tried probably 10 times with no luck so decided if everyone just wanted to ride around all day I was fine with a sprint. Coming into the last time up the hill I followed a bit of an attack and halfway up threw my own attack in and rode away solo to the finish taking another win. The best part was my mom and Tara came out to watch today so it was a great Mother's Day gift to my mother. Looking forward to getting back to a bit of training and then another road trip in 2 weeks. time to cook out and have a few (just a few:-) beers for mothers day... till next time! m@
