I love a fast pace line! Adrenaline anyone?
It seems as if it was just a short time ago, as I was musing about the 2013 race season plans, I may have mentioned this event. And here we are! It is hard to believe today is May 2 and the season is underway.
I'm ready. I've trained for climbing and I am (for the most part) confident going into this weekend. My goal is to relax and enjoy the day. The only kink in the plan is there is a 70% chance of rain on Saturday. Alas, as always I am putting a positive light upon the forecast and am hopeful for sunshine. (Smile, with fingers crossed.)
I am traveling in good company. I have the great fortune to have made some pretty wonderful friends who share the love for the sport of cycling and triathlon. The group I am traveling with has participated in this event many times in the past, but for me it will be a first. I'm psyched! In one day we will cycle 100 miles, cover 3 states and 3 mountains with rolling hills in between. The start is in Tennessee, then traveling through a portion of Alabama, part of Georgia then back to Tennessee. The rain will add to the challenge.
I will update you, and hopefully have photos to share after the weekend! I hope you have a splendid weekend as well, and happy Cinco de Mayo!!
