Today was a snow day in New York. Truth to tell, it wasn't such a big deal but I took advantage of it and worked on my race calendar and logistics for the day. People ask me what is the hardest part of this campaign. Well, believe it or not, it is not the racing. It isn't even the training.... it's the logistics. Flights, car rentals, race entries, hotels, bike transportation, my work schedule (oh yeah, there's work to juggle), nutrition, maps, directions.... you get the idea. The racing is actually easy. This is my "busy" time of year.
Don't get me wrong. I am not complaining. Call it the calm before the storm but soon there will be emails sent to everyone I know, asking for more support, another donation and anything else I can think to ask... all in an effort to raise money for ovarian cancer and find a method of early detection.
So while it may be icy and snowy outside and my training may be a little lighter than summertime, trust me when I say the wheels are moving, the credit card is red hot and the details are coming together nicely.
