The final day, Saturday, we went to pick them up in Colorado Springs and had planned to be there as they rode over the finish line. It was a short easy ride though and they got in a couple of hours before we got down there. Needless to say, they were parked close to the beer tent with a cold one in their hands. They did share with us, though. It was quite a party and there was a band playing and food tents, etc. We stayed for a couple of hours, but Paul and Steve were beat and ready to get home. Pretty much the rest of the day was spend relaxing and recuperating. Now its time to start training for next year!!!
KRIS AND THE SWIM TEAM - We had an invitational meet (you have to qualify to get in)on Saturday morning and Kris got to swim in one relay race. They swam really well, but unfortunately because the competition was so stiff (teams from all over Denver) they came in last place. I was very proud of Kris though, because he swam the final leg of the relay and gained a good bit on the boy in front of them. It is also tough, because they are nine year olds in a 9-10 age group and the 10 year olds seem a lot bigger than the 9's. We have our next meet on Tuesday night so the relay team can redeem themselves then.
