Spent most of the day sewing with my new quilt bee friends. Kids coming back from Grand Cayman tonight. So many things to do! After our bee group got packed up, Lucy and I went to Petco to buy two months of food. On our way to the airport, found out that Maggie and James Mowad's flight was cancelled.

I have my silk long johns in the suitcase ready to stay ...
... at 11. Both of us had really good races. I had my best race start ever, going into the single track in first position (AKA "the hole shot"). I held on to the lead until the jeep road opened up, then one slipped by me. By the end 2 more got past me, but I am still super pleased with my effort.
