So just a quick "hi" and "bye," before the weekend gets going! In a short hand form here is what has been going on and what will be going on this weekend!
- I accepted the Bous slot. I sorta knew i would, bc I had 95% of me saying "what an honor, and how cool is this? I cant say no!!!" while only 5 % of me was relating this to a tennis analogy, where i have been, where I beat the top seed in the semi's and then when the reality of the great match hits me i am destroyed in the finals by an opponent who was very much my equal. Tisk tisk for thinking this, mainly bc I dont really feel like ANY of the girls i race WITH are my opponents. I am honored that they push me and i hope i push them to be better athletes and to enjoy the sport for the right reasons. I dont mean to make a huge deal out of it but i had my heart set on one more 70.3 and i just had to decide. We are doing alot of cycling in july, I am not even racing a Tri in july, and i just cant race back to back weekends doing longer stuff:(
-Rich does his first Tri tommorrow! I am SO EXCITED. He is in the last wave, and I am in the first wave so i will be home in time to watch him finish. GO RICH!!! I sure hope they dont allow wetsuits, its soupy out there and the lake is super shallow. But we all know how that goes., Ahem. Those lakes seem to drop a gazillion degrees overnight. Voila! ( NOT)
He doesnt have a wetsuit so not like i am going to derail his efforts in a 1/3 mile swim.
- I am also racing. But as i have told many, it is all about Rich. I had my fun last weekend. Which means i am gonna look at this as a SUPER DUPER HARD wko! I may run out of real estate with such a short flat course on the run but i sure will try to run down a few of my speedy bike friends.
-Then we are hopping in the car to go to the cabin where ice bathes are free and Dairy Queen grows on trees. Well not quite but it is a daily event. ( or should i just call it a food group?)
May have to try the new DQ flavor, Pecan Pie. Or make someone else try it so i can get a taste:) sneaky...
These are old but July 4 means picnics, water ballon tosses, 3 legged races and just good old fun. Oh and my dad's jestor hat:)
chippy may kill me for using these photos from 3 years ago but they still make me smile.
- Have a great weekend everyone. We come back from this weekend, then we leave the next weekend for this:
