happy wednesday everyone! here is another part of our weekend. tom was in a cyclocross race which is basically dirt bike racing but on a road bike! it was super awesome and i am so so so proud of him for stepping outside his comfort zone and participating in this race and not to mention coming in 20th out of 35! he did so awesome and it was fun to be actually able to cheer him on. usually the other rides he has been a part of are not very spectator friendly so this was a real treat.
it was a super foggy and a cold day but his parents went with me to support him. tom got right up to the front of the start line and then they were off. it was so much fun also seeing him pass people on the course.
after the race his bike was caked in mud and we took it to a self serve car wash so that he could power wash all the dirt off.
uh, just do darn proud of him. he has totally inspired me to go outside my comfort zone. but would i do this type of racing?? hmmm maaaybe, it is totally brutal but looks fun...maybe some day.
i made a little video of him riding. sorry for my shrill voice and yes the last clip is of me yelling :D
what have you done before that got you out of your comfort zone?
