It was kind of a tough week, because I was feeling a bit under the weather. 
And #battleatbuckhorn is always a tough race. 
But it went pretty well, and I took home second in my age group.

Just about time to get ready...less than three hours until I start! I’m in the first wave at 10am local time, which is 8pm Eastern on Wednesday evening...

So today (Wednesday) was going to be the first day with activities related to Team USA and racing. 
First, a team briefing for all those doing the draft-legal race on Thursday (me). Next, a brief meeting for all of the first-timers on Team USA. Then, I had to get to the race site, pick up my packet, pick up my bike and put pedals and race #s on it, then get it into transition where it would remain overnight until the race tomorrow. 
Sounds like a lot, but usually doesn’t take too long. That is, unless the packet pickup line is 1 1/4+ hrs long! 
So I was able to get all of this done to be able to race tomorrow; however, that all happened over the course of nearly four hours, which included a lot of standing, never great the day before a race.

Oh, and my team uniform for the opening ceremonies was back at the hotel, because I would have never dreamed all of these things would have taken so long.

So Tyler and I discussed, and reached a decision. Based  on how both of us were feeling, and the race prep I still needed to do, the opening ceremonies were out. Because a) we would barely have made it back for them, and b) I would have been extremely tired and stressed about prepping to race.

At the end of the day, my first objective is to represent my country as best I can; the rest is nice stuff. And as one of the Team USA coaches said this morning, removing stresses is one of the best things you can do to get ready to race...

Packet pickup day at Edgewater Park, where my race takes place on Sunday. Beautiful beach (and wave swells!), lots of photo ops, and plenty of event merchandise.

saying goodbye to my 25 year-old wallet. Easy to find something else to carry money, but there’s no replacement for the memories and inspiration. .
