The Big Dance in T minus 1 Month

When life gets so busy that keeping all the balls in the air feels like a nearly an impossible task, what do you do?

Keep your head down, stay focused and work hard.

So, that is exactly what I have been doing for the last month. While I have had to make some sacrifices on the training front, my main focus has been to be active during the week in s/b/r and nailing my long workouts on the weekends.

The temps in Texas are starting to soar and I can definitely feel it on my long runs, but my pace is still holding up. My long bike rides have been strong and consistent and I got to ride two loops of the hilly section of the IMTX course last weekend. While there are some hills, there are downhills as well, with lots of opportunities to pick up some good speed.

I don't know if I am going to be a trained "ready" for this race, but I have never been more ready for a race to arrive!

Hope your training and racing has been going well - stay safe, train hard and may the wind be at your back! Hope to see a lot of you on the IMTX course one month from today!

Wow! I can't believe it's in less than a month. Soak up that warm weather for me! It snowed here today. What I wouldn't give for a nice sultry evening right now!

You're going to do great! And, you've still got a whole month left. I know it'll go by quickly, but it's gonna be awesome. I hope the heat doesn't get too hot for the training. Good luck.

No truer words have ever been typed, especially about being ready for the race to arrive -- true dat!!

We are doing the IronStar loop x2 on Saturday morning if you need some riding partners!
