No race this weekend. Catching up on laundry, work, life, time with my husband and training with friends. Racing and traveling around the country is kinda lonely sometimes. Not that I am complaining but when I train with friends, I am reminded how much energy I draw from them. A 25 mile ride yesterday seemed effortless in the company of Suanne and her sister, Andrea. A six mile run this morning went by in a flash thanks to the company of my friend Pamm. It really is more enjoyable to "play" with others.
Next weekend is a different story. Joplin, Missouri. New state, no friends meeting me there but Rufus Racing and the race director have been very supportive already. I am hooked up with a tri bike thanks to the RD (I even think it is her personal bike) and have a potential television spot on WKSN. Looks like it'll be a really fun event. And state #37. You know the drill by now.... all in an effort to raise awareness of ovarian cancer. Stay tuned.
