Race Schedule and Results

Ack...

Just when I think I'm catching up, a million things get plopped down in front of me.  I swear I love you all, I'm just WAY behind. Quick update...
  • Feeling a ton better - this cold lasted about a week and after taking it really slow last week, I feel like my head isn't in the clouds.
  • Tom's Achilles is healing.  The swelling is totally down.  He ran two miles on Monday and five with me yesterday.  He said that he doesn't even feel a twinge when we run fast.  Great...
  • We're heading to Napa tomorrow and I can't wait.  One of Tom's teammates is getting married and I absolutely love Matt and Steph so it should be fun.  Plus it's in Napa... I've never been, but I'm super excited.
  • I honestly can't believe that it's almost June.  Where did January, February, March, April and May go?  I'm getting excited for some small local races, although I'm kind of worried if my sprint/olympic speed is there.  Guess I'll be testing it soon enough.
  • We had two great rides this last weekend and I can't believe how awesome my Kestrel fits.  We did a 60 mile American Diabetes Tour de Cure in Louisville this past weekend (seeing signs for La Grange made me throw up in my mouth a little... which is a shame - I like the IMLOU course a lot) and then we did another 70 on Sunday in Columbus.  I'm thinking we'll do our first century on Memorial day. Ice cream festival time and that's the best motivation to ride!!!
  • My countdown says 109 days until the Full Rev Cedar Point.  I'm so freaking excited for that race!!!  
Sorry for the bullet points.  That's kind of where my mind is these days...

Have a great holiday weekend everyone - BE SAFE!!!

You're going to Napa? You didn't say anything about that on the phone today. Have a fun trip. Drink one for me!

Andree said...

Ben said...

Napa is awesome. Make sure to do a winery tour if you have time. The Robert Mondavi winery tour is one of the absolute best especially this time of year.

Coy Martinez said...

I've had some high octane cold for two weeks now. Head in the clouds is right!! Glad you're out of the funk!

Rachelle said...

My hubby and I are doing the Cedar Point Full Rev too. Its my first race at the 140.6 distance. I can't wait. Hope to see you there!

Melissa C said...

How random is it that when you were in Louisville last weekend, I was in Columbus? We were switched. I hope you have a good time in Napa! Feel better soon!

Matthew Smith said...

Have a blast in Napa. That should be fun. 109 days? That's coming up quick, but you'll do terrific! I'm glad your hub's achilles is feeling better. You've been logging some crazy miles on the bike. Keep up the good work!

Emz said...

I love NAPA!!! I did a sip n cycle and it was so much fun went to 2 wineries while using mountain bikes.

Megan said...

Have fun in Napa, I've never been, but would love to go. Plus, there is the Russian River brewery in Santa Rosa (I think that's close to Napa) and they have killer IPA's on tap. :)

Marci said...

At least someone has been riding... my full (ChesapeakeMan) is in less than four months and I've barely ridden!

Christi said...

I did the whole bullet thing on my last post as well. Its just that time of year.

I am glad that Tom is doing better. Have a great time in Napa!

track coach and adorable wife said...

I don't mind the bullet points. It is hard for this prego brain to focus, so the bullets actually help me! Have fun in Napa, it sounds awesome!

Lindsay and James Cotter said...

oh i feel the same way. Enjoy Napa!! wish I could go.
;)

Molly said...

yes, May has been nuts.
