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.

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.

Leave for Budapest - 8 Days
Competition - 13 days

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