It's been a while. Lets catch up shall we?
We had an amazing trip to Tanzania (check out this photo set it's just the "best of" not all of our photos). An amazing country, some amazing learning experiences, and so many friends made that we won't soon forgot. Our host family was so amazing and welcoming. You can read our blog from the trip on the GR site, too much to put here, but if you ever have the chance to travel to Tanzania we highly suggest it, put it on your list and let us know if you make it, we'll introduce you to some amazing people.
Had a great trip to Montana when we got back to the states, some kayaking, hiking, and a wedding. It's easy to be away from Montana for a while and forget how amazing it is...I was reminded to be sure.
Getting back on the bike! Had a little less hectic schedule than last year in terms of getting back and being able to focus on finding some fitness. The weather cooperated and I feel like coming into Sept I am more focused and better prepared than I was last year...The fitness still has a way to go, but it's Sept, it's always hard to balance my actual fitness with the level I want to be racing at this time of year, but I will be patient, it's an extra long season this year and I have cyclocross nationals on my calendar for January in Madison Wisconsin.
I was able to jump in a couple races already. Did the Grand Prix Molly Cameron #1 and had a blast. And the Thrilla races have already gotten underway. Gonna race my way into shape this month. Headed to Hood River this weekend for another couple...
It's Cross Season!!!!! I couldn't be more psyched about it.
