We waited another 10 minutes for John, one of the guys we ride with in Thames, to pass the point we were waiting at. We rode with his bunch for a good little stretch and then harassed a few other racers we know. It was at one of these stops that we heard about a woman that crashed and she believed she broke her arm. A call was made to the race coordinators to get help up at the beginning of the track. We made her a sling and passed her some pain pills. I did do most of my WFR checklist from memory before doing any treatment. My diagnosis was a fracture. If I had my first aid kit I could have done more, but the swath of cloth made a nice sling.

I've been baking a bit lately. I had the craving for French Silk Pie so I made 2 pies this past weekend. I made a flaky pie crust, whipped up the chocolate filling, and whipped topping. I took them to work and they disappeared very quickly. Then after running on Tuesday night, I felt like Peanut Butter cookies. I found a quick 5 ingredient gluten free recipe that takes under 20 minutes from cracking the egg to smearing nutella on the cookie and gnoshing on it.
This weekend we are planning on heading up North of Auckland to ride at Woodhill. Its about 40 minutes from Central Auckland. After that we plan on working on our trails as we are almost done with another track. Then we have 2 more marked that need to be started. Its extremely gratifying to build a trail and a short while later be bombing down the flow that you marked out.
On a sad note, our friend Faye is moving back to the UK. I've known her most of the time that I have been here. She was the assistant manager/manager at Macpac while I was there. She was a riding and running companion. I introduced her and Elaine to the joys of Santo Churros in the Mount. She was offered a job with Marmont Europe last week and will be moving back in a couple weeks. I think I'll surprise her with some baking for her going away party that will be held in Tauranga.
