And as the weather gets warmer, and summer has truly arrived in Marin (it always seems to take me until July to feel like summer here)… my official summer racing block has also arrived.
Sunday, Team TIBCO hits the road to head up to Cascade Cycling Classic (6 days, 6 stages)… then three days after that, we start US Elite Nationals. First off, the time trial, followed by the road race. We are going to see if we can get a TIBCO gal in the stars and bars again. One day following Nats, I will be headed to fly into Italy to begin racing for the US National Team at La Route de France. Can you believe it is here already? I hope I am ready for this.
Obviously, I am getting a little nervous. I am not nervous about my preparation. I am ready. I am not nervous about my performance, I am ready and willing to accept any outcomes. I have just been anticipating this little 4 week stint, and it is here. Am I ready to soak it in, to compete and to perform? I sure hope so.
Keep me in your thoughts the next couple of weeks, or month, or…
It is about to begins. When it rains, it pours.
