I'm back in the land of $2.17 gas! Seriously do not know how you Californians drive out there - both for traffic reasons and gas reasons. I always come back a much more aggressive driver and a much more thankful-for-cheap-gas driver from the Games.
Nicole ended up 15th out of 40, but more importantly, was totally healthy at the end. A year of carefully strengthening her back around the disc that caused so much pain last year left her standing strong after all that. Next year, with a full year of real training, she should be amazing. Everything is going according to the long-term plan, and I am so proud of her!
One last day of CrossFit photos (for pretty much just Megan, Stacey and Jessica, sorry everyone else!), then I get to see Connor tomorrow and we'll get back to our regularly scheduled programming. After all, I'm riding in a Jean Luc Cornille clinic this weekend, I need to at least have touched my horse by then!
The first picture is somewhat horse related - this is the first people hair I ever braided. It's much harder than horse hair!

See you next year, California!
