A Taper in Tucson

It’s a pretty rare for me to be in the Dirty T without a schedule completely full of training on the docket. But with winter temps in Charlottesville nearing the single digits, it seemed an appropriate time to head West and adjust to the temperatures in Arizona before the marathon next weekend.

Just because our training load isn’t it’s usual volume, that doesn’t mean Hillary and I am not busy as ever out here.

Despite the busy schedule so far, we most certainly do have a few days of feet-up action on the docket for the week coming. It feels SO GOOD to be riding in some short sleeves here, and there really is nothing like a Tucson trip to remind you that the off season is over and it’s just about time to get back to work! More on that this week as I welcome back sponsors, introduce some new ones, and let you know where I’m heading first for multisport racing in 2015!
