I made my last plane reservation tonight. With fuel prices going through the roof, airline prices have followed. I wanted to lock in my flights now before prices go any higher. So with 15 races this season, 12 of them require air travel. YIKES. Well I knew the 2011 season was going to be my most expensive. And you should see my frequent flyer mileage! I am hoping that next year there will be a few free tickets from all the globe trotting this year.
People have often asked me what the hardest part of this campaign is. It is not the training, it is not the racing. By far, it is the logistics. So with all the flights secured and that step behind me now, I can rest a little easier and concentrate more on what matters.... fundraising and passing the message about ovarian cancer and early detection.
