Initially there was a little confusion about whether the elite women were racing 4 or 5 laps and we all pulled up to the start thinking that it was only 4. However at the line they announced that it was going to be 5. I was secretly happy because I figured the longer distance would play in my favor but after 2 laps I was really wishing for 4. It's funny how all things are relative. A week ago I did a hundred miler and all of a sudden a 25 mile race felt really long. Oh well, I survived the 5th lap and made the top spot of the podium. The best part of the race was that my little sister Toni got 2nd place.

Training is picking up again this week and I'm excited to start working hard again. I can't believe it's almost July. Summer needs to slow down just a little bit....
Even though I'm not racing this coming weekend it's going to be a busy one. I'm going to be helping the Ada Bike Shop at a free helmet event for kids. It's going to be a great event and I absolutely can't wait. Not only do I get to be a part of giving away 500 helmets, but I get to help run the skills course. I'll post more info tomorrow!
