Sickness

This week has been full of yukiness for me.  I have had some sort of upper respiratory infection that has really bogged me down.

I am glad most of it is behind me now, besides the nagging cough... ya know those can linger on for months sometimes.. not cool!

I am in a sort of panic mode knowing that my races are getting super close.

Booked our weekend stay for Murfreesboro so we can spend time with friends and only be 45 minutes from race site.  Looking forward to a repeat weekend of last year when I did the Oak Barrel, all but maybe a better time on my finish. :)  I can't wait to see Heather and Darin again and spend a nice weekend away from home with my guy.  I love that he goes and supports me and takes photos and cheers me on big race days like this one. I hate he has to sit and wait on me for hours though... he is such a good sport about it though.

I also ordered new bike tires for my road bike Suzie.  I am going to have to take time within the next two weeks sit down and really feel more comfortable with bike maintenance and changing those pesky tires.  I give up every time I have tried and get assistance from Thomas.  It is great to have him here to help and do these things for me, but he isn't there on race day... or not out on the course anyway and if I have flat tire during a race I am pretty much screwed!  So... I need to know and feel secure that I can do some simply maintenance and tire changes myself.... just in case.  I have dropped the chain a few times and managed to figure that out in races lol but I HATE WHEN THAT HAPPENS!

Anyway ready or not these races are approaching... just a few more weeks. EEK! :)
