On the flip side

Well, the car is packed.  The bike is locked to the top, along with it's front wheel.  I have a cooler of fruit, nuts, water and crackers in the back seat and about 40 hours of books on disk in the front.  My triptix is highlighted and the tank is full.


Time to point Fancy due West and head for Wisconsin.

Time to SUIT UP and represent.  Enjoy a little fruit of the labor, as it were.  Time to test the resolve and push the limits.  Time to make my Mom proud.

Thanks to all of the raceAthlete volunteers who will travel to Wisconsin this Sunday to support those of us racing.  I already know you'll make the route more fun and feel worlds shorter.

Thanks to my family for catching awkward flights and watching the longest swim meet ever in the history of swim meets.  I couldn't toe the line without you.

Thanks to Mighty M's family for blogging for me while I'm "busy" and making sure I don't forget that I'm loved.  You're a source of constant strength and encouragement I rely on daily.

Thanks to the blogging community who have left funny, inspirational and downright loving comments on my ramblings for a year now.  I've come to find a rare and fantastic community with you that I value greatly.

Thanks to those who have donated their personal finances to Canine Partners for Life.  We exceed our fundraising goal and helped ensure that those who want more out of life can grab hold.

Thanks to Mighty M for everything, always.  You are my rock and I miss you already.

I don't really know where all of this will end, but I remember where it started and that's enough.  See you in Wisconsin!
