Bike is clean. Bags are packed. Training (so far) is in the bank. Tomorrow I am off for the first race of the season! (Running races don't really count...)
On Saturday I will be participating in the RAGE Half. Notice, I am not using the word 'racing' on purpose. Sadly, It has yet to be determined whether I will be racing or using it as a training day. Noah and Max have both been sick with colds and fever the last few days and, no matter how hard I've been trying, I'm not immune.
It is nothing major, but a sore throat, headache, and runny nose is less than ideal . How can I push your body to its limit for 5 hours if it is not feeling 100%? I tried that in my last race and it did not go so well, remember?
Either way I am going and I am really excited to spend some time with my friend Karen, take a break from super-clingy kids, and enjoy the warm sun at Lake Mead. However, since I have not given up hope and am still trying my very best to feel tops on Saturday, I am going to bed now...
Good luck to everyone else racing this weekend! Make it awesome!
(My friend Jen wrote me a note today telling me to 'make it awesome' and I like it. It's all up to us and we can make it whatever we want it to be.)
Happy Training and Happy Racing!
