I am blessed to be well and injury free. And when this came in the mail today sent by my fabulous friend Leslie who won 40-44, I smiled. I smiled bc I know that I will get another chance to be present at an awards, and I smiled bc I know that the sun will come out sometime and we will have summer, even if for a few short weeks.
And I smiled bc I have choices, and choices are good. And I have a family that loves me, friends that think i am an ok person, and a coach that talks me down when i think i should be running FAST again 7 days after a really hard hot race.
Had a great chance to ride with Team Vera Bradley Foundation last night. They are in town for the Nature Valley Grand Prix series. In years past Kristin Armstrong has come out to play, Team Ouch's Floyd Landis was here, and I am sure some other fasties will show up. There is a local composite team and I know they will do great. Those women cyclists are BAD A$$. Seriously. I used to feel all Bad A$$ on my road bike too, last night i just kept trying to go Aero till i realized i couldnt!
I jumped in the pool last night after the ride . It was 66. It felt good. And if summer isnt going to come to me. I am going to come to summer.
Oh and sorry i guess he has a girlfriend.
