After Joe Martin, Amanda and I jumped in the van with Chris at the wheel for the cross country trip. It was mostly uneventful except for the breaking of a shelving rack in the trailer, which we had to handle before moving on. We played javelin with the pieces before throwing them away like proper citizens:) Gotta have some fun somehow!
We made it to Silver City the next day with a couple more girls that we picked up at the ABQ airport and navigated to our amazing host house, in the middle of the forest!! It was so quiet and nice!
The race wasn't our best but I sure had a good time with my teammates, they are great friends and we enjoy lots of laughs together, no matter what. We ended up having a couple of girls sick and some were tired so it was a long race. Onward, upward.
I'm currently in the Denver airport, headed back home(CO) and looking forward to some rest and being home for more than 5 days.
