Right now I am in Vegas to kick off the Xterra season. It has been great so far...I had Jess to keep me company on the drive out, the house my folks got is amazing and right next to the race site, I am surrounded by family, I am running into people I haven't seen in a long time, and I have checked out the race course. This course, in my opinion, is really hard! The bike has super steep climbs, loose, rocky descents and the run course is relentless with steep ups and downs. Plus, it is going to be hot tomorrow. It should all make for a brutal day of racing, which is why I am here =)
Enjoying some coffee and breakfast now, doing a little work, and then I am heading out at 9 for a lap of the bike course and a swim. Skinfit is going to be well represented tomorrow....Lesley Paterson, Nico Lebrun, Adam Zucco, me, and several others. Excited to get some good pics for the websites and blogs!
My bike is totally dialed thanks to Gordon at B & L. Honestly, I am floored by the level of service the B & L crew is providing...there is no better shop in S.D. So many shops just want your money but at B & L you are part of the family and they bend over backwards to make sure you have everything you need. Thanks for everything guys!
So, everything is a go for tomorrow. It will be a good gauge of fitness for me as we near races in June. We will just have to see how my leg holds up on the run and how it is doing moving forward.
