Congratulations Hubby!

You have always been Numero Uno to me, but I'm so proud of you for proving it to everyone else last night. Congratulations on your big NUMBER ONE in the second Leadville winter race. My new favorite words heard over a race radio? "Wow! Someone has already come through this checkpoint. We almost missed him, he came so fast. It's... uhh... Chris Plesko." Hehe. I'm very proud of you. Oh, and thanks for winning that bottle of wine and awesome dinner for two at the Tennessee Pass Cookhouse. Yum!

Ooooh, ahhh. Beautiful sunset.
My only success at getting a "streaky light" night picture. I intended to get more of these during the race, but then the camera froze. Literally.
Mr. #1 getting ready to race in the new team kit.
Part of the start line.
We have a weeeener.
Mike finishing. Apparently he became see-through as the race wore on.
Congratulations to Mike, Chris, Dave and Bill for an awesome showing. The boys on my team are seriously cool.

P.S. I am a few days into my dose of antibiotics for tonsillitis and should hear back about strep tomorrow. I'm improving, but slowly. I still get daily pounding headaches and have little to no appetite. I haven't ridden my bike in the month of February. I better get better soon. This is not delightful. For anyone involved.

Congratulations to Chris!

I had really bad sore throat last month to the point of getting dehydrated one day because it hurt too much to swallow. I didn't feel terrible otherwise so didn't go to the doc. When I finally went, my doc took one look and said he didn't care what the strep test said he was putting me on antibiotics. The strep test was positive. Definately wasn't any fun.

Oh Marni - that sounds horrible!!!

I mean the being sick - it sounds wonderful that you have a #1 hanging around to take care of you :) And he better be taking good care of you - you let us know if he's not and we'll beat him up...

I'm not sure how that will help you get better - but I'm willing to do it anyway...

hope those antibiotics kick some bacterial butt - and quickly!!!
