So what's next? His competitive drive needs an outlet. He's a passionate person who has to pour his energy into something and constantly strive to improve and progress. Answer: Criterium Racing (or crit racing). Last month, we stopped by a community event called the Folsom Cyclebration. It was a crit race. A was intrigued. He had never heard of this type of bike racing before. After observing all day and the next, he decided to start training for a crit race. Just over a month later, he entered his first competition, the Lodi Cyclefest. Check out how he did!

In case you missed that, A took first place in his category! I'm so proud of him and glad that he really enjoyed himself. He has been training hard for his next race at the end of August and I know he'll do great. That guy doesn't have any "quit" in him. When he puts his mind to something, he's one of the most focused, driven people that I know. I'm excited for this new chapter in our lives...and of course...to be his biggest fan!
