The incredible show in Denver

Well. Off season has been pretty darn great.
Sometimes this so nice and so relaxing that I think that this can't possibly ever have to end.
Buttttt then I'll get scribbling my race notes or season goals and start to get that itch. And I realize that the stir-crazy little athlete in my head (the one who has been watching me walk past my running shoes for a month...) is going to explode with much more of this. Then I get excited. Excited for what's around the corner, and excited to push my limits.

On that note:
I have a coach for the 2013 racing season.
Eric Kenney of EKEndurance Coaching. Hoot Hoot!

He and I met today up in Boulder to chat and lay out goals for how I will be training this year.
Then we geared up for a ride......
50 miles later......

Holy shit. What a great ride. I was pretty excited that I kept truckin' - for not being on my bike in, um, a month....It wasn't as murderous as I thought it would be. But, then again....we'll see about tomorrow. Muah ha ha.

Countdown:

1 week: 2013 Season
