Well, I have arrived in the adult athlete playground of the world: Boulder! The immediate good news: I can walk up stairs without losing my breath! Man, have I missed that.
But seriously, remember how when you went to Disney World as a little kid you carried around an autograph book? (If I was the only one who did this, please just don’t tell me. I’d rather like to go on thinking I was normal.) That’s basically how I feel here. It’s pretty much as star studded as Kona only somehow most of the “stars” are going to be spectating, not racing, this time around.
If you are here to be a spectator and you don’t want to miss me just LOOK FOR ALL THE PINK!
Pink Bike Tape:
Lava Berry Obvi!
(just kidding mom!)
All the pink aside, I’m ready to race – it actually feels like AGES ago I was in Atlantic City. This has been a challenging training block — driving across the country, figuring out how to train at altitude successfully, living out of a suitcase – but, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger and I’m ready to go on Sunday! And hey look – I even got out shoutout on witsup.com! Thanks ladies 🙂
