Photos from MW Champs that were held in Albuquerque, New Mexico this weekend. Finished my short indoor season with two top3 finishes (1. in 5k and 3. in 3k) and now it feels nice to move the gaze towards the approaching outdoor season when one has some bling around her neck – ha! Racing in altitude is still strange to me (Albuquerque is at ~ a mile high) and I am trying to accept the fact that the times are much slower. The races were rather tactical than speedy, but it was nice to try new ways to race. I am satisfied with the victory at the 5k but disappointed with the result after yesterday’s 3k: altitude, doubling, and my race tactic were all bit too much and I was unable to respond when the move was made. However, I accept that there were two girls stronger than me yesterday, and remember that I was the strongest on Friday. So happy for my teammate (& future roomie♡) Brenna who got 2. in the 5k and 2. in the 3k! Overall, we had a really good weekend with several great performances, Go Broncos!! Even though I raced indoors in the middle of training and without actual tapering, it feels good to get a short break from racing and get some good weeks of training in before the first track meets on April.
Happy National Pancake Day Everyone! I am just going to make a nice stack of pancakes for breakfast….;)
