Cherry Blossom for the Win

I'm not sure where I got the idea that racing both the CRCA Club Race in Central Park and the Cherry Blossom Challenge a few hours later in Newark was a good idea. Particularly with a 4am alarm to arrive early in Central Park to help setup registration. But what started out as a "sure why not" on the team e-mail list wound up being a great day at the races with a bit of a power nap and a breakfast sandwich in between. The highlight of the day was definitely Donnie going with a first lap break at Cherry Blossom and taking home the big win - but really with blue skies, temperatures creeping higher and a day spent on the bike with teammates there's not much to be unhappy about... perhaps other than a distinct lack of sleep.
