Blank Space

I wanted to update but i dont have much to say. I have two more races to go, Irongirl du, where sadly they seem to have some issue each year whether it be no elite wave or this year they shortened the bike. Perhaps it is just the time of year and i shouldnt be doing this race bc my attitude seems sour about it. Think it is me, and that is just my frame of mind lately.
I decided short or long, good road or bad, I am going to do the best i can on that day.
I am racing for Team Courage, made up of racers who have had or are fighting cancer.
I cant say much more about that, but for some of you out there you know what this NOW means to me. More on that later. After that there is the TCM 10 miler. I got in on the lottery, have a 1st corral start, and will run that one up my usual route on Summit then turn around and be glad I didnt just run a full marathon:)

Fed lost too. That was not fun. But ya cant win em all. And i watch his btwn the legs video and i smile!
Instead I think posting some pictures will make me feel good, and yes Lupin always makes me feel good!
Here's Rich doing a TT. Scott Plasma. I think i need to get the 2010 Scott Contessa. I just saw Linsey Corbin's. Love. It.
And one of my favorite Crit pics at the State Fair Crit last summer. Inside position. Riding my neglected Bianchi Liquigas Campy bike. Poor Bike. It doesnt get the love it once did.

Ok have a good week everyone. More later.

Hi Julia,
Great photo of you on the inside position.
Felt like shouting GO Julia GO.
Good luck at Iron Girl.
ps Lupins are gorgeous flowers.

You have had a great season.. and its typical to feel blah sometimes at this time of year with having followed a structured training schedule most of the year! YOu are in the home stretch for your wedding!!!

I love that pic of you in the Crit! I am so impressed since I am a total wimp when corning on my bike.

I hope Irongirl goes well and you end up rockin it despite the little things that just seem "off"! We are ALL struggling this time of year so you're not the only one by far! I'm on the PUSH THROUGH mode myself!! Like the crit photos! I used to ride those too but I got too freaked out and scared that I was going to hurt myself and not making it through tri season which became more of a focus! When you get that Scott Contessa - send one my way too will ya!! Thanks for the b-day wishes!!

Good luck at Irongirl. Just have fun and enjoy racing for Team Courage.

And I think I have serious bike envy.
