Overall things went really well during April. I had my first bike ride of the year when I did the L’Etape du California (I still need to right my race report) on April 6. It was the an event where we got to ride the Final Stage of the upcoming Tour of California stage race. It was 4 loops of a challenging ride up a locally famous ride called the Rockstore. The loop was 20 miles with 2000+ feet of elevation gain. The goal was to do all 4 loops but Stuart had a couple mechanical issues which ended up keeping us from doing the final loop. But overall I did well and was pleased with how the day went. Click here to see my ride details.
My mileage was a little low but that was due to a pretty exciting event…we got married (again)!!! We did get married back in January for administrative purposes so we finally had a ceremony for our family and a party for our friends. It was an amazing day that I will never ever forget! I am so lucky to have found THE person I am meant to be with for the rest of my life. Stuart brings me so much joy and happiness. Below are a few pictures form the wedding. We had the most amazing photographer, Mackenzie Dore. Check her out if you are in our area and need any pictures.
I got a sneak peak at the next 4 weeks of my training and it is ramping up for sure! I am getting excited to see what I can do at Vineman this year. I am feeling kind of confident that it will go well this year for sure!
