Good news... my bike has arrived in Las Vegas and Nate at The Bike Shop in Henderson, NV is setting it up for me. A big shout out to them! I am so relieved. This is the first year I am shipping the bike ahead and I was concerned. It is costing a bunch of money but peace of mind is worth it. And I just don't trust the airlines any more. So.... this is the week.
I leave Thursday and the race is Saturday afternoon. It's called the Showdown at Sundown and is the first race I have ever done in the afternoon. I am a morning workout gal and of course, most races go off at 6 am so this will be very different. We'll have to see if my body likes it. Truth to tell, I am happy about being able to sleep in. But what of my nutrition? How do I eat that day? Big learning curve but I am excited. I stand to learn a lot from this experience.
Stay tuned. I will blog when I get back.
