Still, considering it was only my 4th race of the year and it was super hot, top 10 is always a good result at the Snake and next year I'll have a little more experience and maybe a little more power on the top of the course.
The rest of the weekend is always training races for me and some time to relax away from home. This was our first trip with Jocelyn and we weren't too confident when we left that it was going to be a relaxing or enjoyable experience but she did really good. It works out nicely that most of the races have a park at the race so Jamie was able to have Jocelyn in the stroller while Ellie tested her 3yr old freedom on the swings. 95 degrees for 3 days and Ellie was still going strong when we were packing up to leave.
I was glad I spent some time putting in a new AC Condenser on the Subaru last week because the weekend might have turned out a little different if I hadn't. The old condenser had a leak that I finally found so it was leaking out the refrigerant. It took about 45 minutes to get in the new condenser and then I had my brother-in-law charge it up at his shop - ice cold AC again!
So, it was a good weekend of racing and being with the family. I got in 4 races total for a little fitness boost and we all got a good deal of sunshine and warmth. Looks like a high of 55 Wednesday so what is that, almost a 45 degree temperature swing from a few days ago - going to need armwarmers.
