the best laid plans

wow! my week has absolutely flown by and here it is February already. with nose to the grindstone, indoor trainings three nights this week, and half a dozen bike fits, I've barely had time to keep up with email, never mind tackle creative writing. so, while I still intend to share thoughts about the Women's Cycling Conference, I've yet to put pen to paper so to speak.

as you think about your weekend, I'll leave you with this little piece by Kathie Reid for Velo News.

the weather seems to be clearing for a day or two, so I'll encourage all of you to get out and ride in the fresh air and sunshine. I'll be racing a duathlon at Folsom Lake tomorrow morning -- my first of the season -- and I'm excited to get the cobwebs out.

between breaks in the raindrops, take a few minutes for yourself today to get outside, even if it's just for a walk around the office.

good luck tomorrow!

thanks, Flandria! even though I've been training a bit, it's really just an early season throw-away -- just trying to learn some more about duathlon at this point and work out some kinks. it's a mtn bike du and due to the rain I haven't really been on the mtn bike so that should be interesting, especially since I just changed shifting systems.

but I'm excited!

Yeah, I saw the article last night. That's pretty cool.

I've been for my tour of the office gym and then the tour of the fresh fruit bar. Now I'm working full time on sedentary :)

Good luck! You'll be racing 30min from my hometown on my birthday and I'm rooting for you...that has to be provide some cosmic benefit!
