Today was full of cyclocrosss… I didn’t get to race but I did go out to the race. Today there was lots of racing action in Averbode (just down the road from us). I went out to cheer on friends of ours that we’ve met over the years of racing. It was interesting to be on the other side of the fence. The course at Averbode was really good – lots of twists and turns, climbs, sand, a bit of road – a good mix.
I hung out with Ignace and we watched the racing and cheered on René and Danielle. It also gave me a chance to catch up with some of the women I race with as well. Actually it was an excellent few hours out.
This afternoon we had Ignace and Bjorn over to watch the Igorre World Cup on television – nice to hang out, chat and watch the racing. After a bit of chilling it out we were off to the Mie Maan for some food. Here we met up with Jos and Keirnan – so we had a good mix for supper. Lots of good stories and some laughs.
All in all, a good day. I also got out for an hour long walk in the woods. I’m not a huge fan of walking but it is better than doing nothing. Walking in the woods can be an interesting experience. Lots of people are usually out and today amongst the runners, dog walkers and cyclists I saw some folks giving their horses a workout:
Exciting news is that Marc is arriving on Tuesday!!!
