Alright, well it's hard to believe that this is the last update. I'm leaving today to fly to Annapolis to meet Tom at the pier. I'm so incredibly excited! The team is still kicking some major butt! They are in first place by nearly 3 hours and are cruising right along through Southern Ohio (which isn't easy). Today's a tough day of climbing - they'll hit WV and then it's smooth sailing into MD! Tom's feeling good - tired and ready to be at the finish, but I'm sure that's how all of the guys feel at this point. The monotony gets to them after a while. ;) Thanks so much for all the support and well wishes. I've passed them along to Tom and we both really appreciate the support!
And as for me... I couldn't be more excited for a little vacation! I'm hurting... training the last few days has been brutal knowing that I wouldn't be home this weekend. It's crunch time after all. I raced Saturday and Sunday (which meant 1-1.5 hours all out both days), Monday I took a double spin class (2 hours), Tuesday I biked 60 miles and yesterday I ran 10. My hip is really bothering me today and I'm thinking that I might have done something to it in the run. BLAH! Hope it's just a slight over use thing and that a few days at a lower intensity will help heal me right up!
