not much to say this week... rain on tuesday night killed the wakefield 'cross practice and the powers that be canceled the MORE thursday night ride to give the trails at wakefield a break and some time to dry out. picked up a new pair of specialized mountain bike shoes from City Bikes on tuesday night then spent some time on the trainer.. cross training at the gym wednesday and thursday.

had lunch with my grandmother on wednesday before taking her to the airport to catch her flight back to the England... being over here i feel that i don't know much as i should about the family history, so getting to talk about her life made for a great lunch and i got to catch up on news about the rest of the family back in England...

MABRA cyclocross championships this saturday at Lilypons and the Capitol 'Cross Classic at Lake Fairfax on sunday... looking forward to both.

At the risk of sounding incredibly hokey/sappy, learn everything you can from your grandmother about her life and your family. My grandmother died a few years back at the age of 99 (born 1901). When I think that we went from horse and buggy to extra-solar-system spaceflight and walking on the moon in her lifetime, it floors me. Towards the end of her life, her kids (my mom and her siblings) were trying to get as much history and as many stories out of grandma as possible to preserve it for a family history. I only wish they (and I) would have started years earlier.
