Almost go time!

Well after last week was basically the best week ever, reality hit here in Wanaka this week and things felt a little more true to form 🙂 The winds have picked up, storms blowing through, a bee sting, flat tire……you know. The usual.

BUT. Forecasts are looking good for Saturday! And honestly a little rain to keep me indoors and off my feet these days is probably a good thing. I’m also completely caught up on anything entertainment related with the E! channel being on 24/7 here in the house. Other good thing? There’s JET PLANES at run aid stations. That’s right people. Little gummies shaped like Jet Planes. I don’t know why, but I know not to question it (if it really is something else just don’t ruin it for me!).

Legs are coming around but for sure I’m still mentally wrapping my head around the 2016 season starting in 1 day. Pretty unreal, but this time in Wanaka has been a great way to kick off the season. Already planning for next year too. But, one step at a time….!

I am bib #54 and you can follow the race in a couple ways:

Live TV coverage here. The commentary is done by Belinda Granger, so, at the very least you will be VERY entertained for a few hours 🙂

In case I make it into the coverage, you can spot me in the NEW Smashfest Queen TriEqual kit! Proceeds from this go to TriEqual, and it’s available for preorders for another couple days, so get it while you can.

Also, as always, a huge thank you to all my sponsors. Will dig deep with your support – thank you!!
