'Tis the Season

Jordan, me, Nick and Lindsay. White is the theme this year, for shirts and hopefully slopes as well.  Carolyn Coffee photo

Here it is, in case I didn't get around to sending you a hardcopy of our family Christmas photo. Instead of going to Yuen Lui this year, we called our favorite ex-Yuen Lui photographer Carolyn and had her come out to the house this fall, shooting in our own backyard rather than in the studio. Kind of nice to have real greenery in the background for a change!

Best holiday wishes to anyone who happens to be reading this, and of course many nice turns in 2010!

National Championship goes to the Dawgs!

No, not the University of Washington football team; with all due respect to Jake Locker and company, that program is a few years off. But chalk up another national championship for the UW to add to their Women's Softball and Women's Cross Country titles with Zach McDonald's adrenaline-filled win in the US Cyclocross Collegiate Nationals last weekend in Bend, Oregon. Most people in the crowd called it the best race of the week, and the final lap is worth watching more than once!

Sorry, Cyclingdirt's imbed function didn't quite function as slickly as YouTube's, but click on the picture above and it'll take you to the right page. Check out the sneaky inside pass on the last lap - my friend Russell is right when he says Zach will go under your armpit to get by you! McDonald is a friend of my son from road racing, and Jordan recruited him to ride for the Huskies in cross this year. Maybe MTB as well . . .
