Recovery, and a Look Forward to Another Great Cross Season

So yeah, I'm inspired.

Jen had her thyroid removed(along with the cancer that lived inside of it) on Wednesday. She had minimal pain and chose to avoid any Vicodin (yes, none). Below, you see Jen the day after surgery, planning her escape from the recovery floor. Fittingly, wearing her "climb every mountain" shirt.

Only three days later, it's Saturday and Jen doesn't want to hear anything about staying home and resting all day on the couch. . . .

Seen below, Jen is ready for a 1-hour cyclocross ride.

It was nice for her to get out on the bike again, even if only a 1 hour spin. Wish I was even half as tough as she is.

After riding back by the house with Jen, I went back out for another 40 minutes, and to my true cyclocross pleasure, I rode home in a downpour with sounds of thunder in the background. I hope this is a sign of things to come this cross season. Let the weather come!! Get your cowbells and your rain jackets ready!!

Great days on the bike ahead.

Wow! Way to go Jen! You are made of super tough stuff! I would probably be eating ice cream and watching back seasons of bad TV shows even now if I were in your spot :) Can't wait to see you out there.

Well done Jen. When the going gets tough, the tough get going. Come on cross season.
