Howdy from post national championships in Chattanooga, TN. The time trial was on Saturday and the road race was Monday. I was actually pretty happy with my time trial seeing that last year I went WAY to hard to soon. This year I was top 10 and looking back to the beginning of this career, that’s a success:) The road race didn’t quite go as planned and I ended up 6th.
I last blogged prior to Women’s Tour in Britain, while I was in Norfolk with my host family. Well the Women’s Tour was absolutely amazing! Over the top! World class! Top notch! So professional! The team won overall team general classification, so we got to partake in the post race festivities on stage, that was fun. And in the far distance, I saw the Norfolk neighbors with their cute little one on their shoulders, that was really cute!
After the race we drove closer to London, I was flying out EARLY the next morning and the girls had to do an Optum event. We celebrated a little bit by enjoying a genuine pub. My food of choice was finally - fish n chips. The next morning(4:20am wake up) it was time to head to the airport, time to go home, get some rest and some altitude. It took most of the week to get back on a normal sleep pattern but what I lacked in sleep, I totally made up for by spending the days enjoying the beautiful mountain air! Man, I swear the sky is more blue. I finally could off load the beer I had been carrying around since Flanders:) ha!! Michael and Lance were happy to take the burden....
I will continue on the road for the next 3 weeks with races in Philadelphia, Gatineau, Canada and finishing with Nature Valley. Enjoy the photos....
UPDATE.... I haven't had Internet to post to my blog until now, post Philly race. I was 3rd on the day after climbing 'the wall' 5 times and my team doing an awesome job. I'll take it. Now on to Canada!
One of our awesome sponsors - John Kelly. We stayed with him for a couple of days in between races....
