My cousin's husband Morgan was also registered for the race, so we got to visit with Robin and Morgan and their kids on and off throughout the weekend.
I was not sure whether or not to take the kids up to the race, seeing how I am due any day now, and I wasn't sure how the parking and walking to the finish line with all 4 kids was going to be.
I decided to go though, and am glad we did. We got a great parking spot, and there wasn't much of a hike at all. The weather was perfect, and the kids had some buddies to hang out with. Even if there had been a crazy hike to the finish line, I am ready to do almost anything to try to get our little girl here!
It is important to me that our family supports each other in the things we do, so I really wanted to kids to be able to see Ben and support him.
We ended up finding Robin there, and getting a spot to sit right smack at the finish line! We were able to cheer on Ben and Morgan as they came flying through the finish line, completing their runs with a jump.
Robin and I were relieved to see Ben and Morgan come down in one piece (well, kind of. Morgan ended up needing stitches under his eye due to a crash).

No one was able to do a warm up run today, and that definitely was not cool. Ben did a great job, and went for it anyway.
Great job Ben, and good way to finish out your first competitive downhill season!
