Getting Ready For Worlds

Swim Smart. Bike Strong. Run Tough.

70 °F

8 Days until I leave for Budapest.
It seems like this has always been so far away on the horizon.....I can't believe it is all really coming together and happening.

Updates:
I've continued to spend every paycheck on new gear and travel expenses and I continue to not care about the debt I am incurring because it will all be worth it. I'm beginning to think of it / justify it all as career investments. If I was going to grad school or starting a full time job I would be spending a ton of money to get ready and set up for those endeavors. I'm just choosing a different path.

Been placing top 3 women consistently over the past 4 or 5 races. Which is pretty awesome.
Westfield evening news did a really sweet article about my racing last week - they called it 'Cooking up a winner' - ha, because of my last name. Clever-ish.

I spent an hour attaching two dinky wheels to my bike box yesterday - I stripped two of the eight screws and did a lot of cursing. After that little experience / attempt I'm pretty sure any camp appropriate language filter I picked up is already out the window.

New Gear:
Zipp 808 Aero Wheels
Specialized TT Helmet
Profile Design - Marlin Wetsuit

Quote of the Day / My New Mantra:
Swim Smart. Bike Strong. Run Tough.

Countdown:
Leave for Budapest - 8 Days
Competition - 13 days

Here's to Peace, Cherry Tomatoes and An Incredible Summer,
Aubs
