For the first time in a long time, multiple Bellas turned up to hit the greens on an unseasonably warm Sunday morning in Clinton, NY.  Totally not appropriate ‘cross weather, it was delightfully balmy and sunny.  This was the first ‘cross race of the year for some, and the first ‘cross race EVER for others.  (Initials are LiLynn D. Graves.)

The course was a fun mix of swoopy turns through shaded woods, open fields complete with pagoda, a sandpit of death, and a nasty steep and rooty run straight up to heaven.  Enough to keep everyone content with one “special” favorite somewhere.

For the record, I think LiLynn let me beat her…not sure why, but she’s that kind of teammate, tho.

And Sue slays the competition RIGHT HERE.  Looking mighty calm by the volleyball net.



Kate finds amusement in an odd moment on the back stretch.



Our NY Cross Queen, Katina.


Newlywed (the day before!) Bella Christina Chambers rode the women 4 race earlier in the day and stayed to cheer on the open women Bellas.  In her haste to get to her wedding, she forgot to pack her Velo Bella togs. Priorities, woman, please!!

We were not first, but we weren’t last either:
