countdown to corner brook, pt 3

my team kit came yesterday. american women are in blue & white this year.

there are two things wrong with this picture, AFAICS:

1.) orca forget to screen on the Team USA logo. oops. guess i'll be racing as a bandit.
2.) it's teeny -- just a sports bra and daisy duke shorty-shorts. where on EARTH am i supposed to put my wobbly parts??

shipping a bike to canada is a lot more complicated than i thought it'd be. we couldn't ship it from rik's shop this morning, so i'm now toting it around the city of wilmington in my trunk/back seat, hoping just HOPING i can pass it off to FedEx or DHL sometime today.

vacation? this is no vacation. this is a logistical pain in the ass. especially on 4 hours of sleep a night because of the fucking Tour. i take back everything i said about this year being kinda snoozers. landis was an inspired man yesterday. and today -- the race of truth, the indiv TT.

i am exhausted but have miles to go before i sleep. if we didn't have mice -- i saw one run across the floor yesterday while i was eating lunch -- i'd curl up under my desk and hide from all my deadlines.

That look pretty skimpy. How's the leg holding up?

the leg is holding up, but it's a total wildcard: i've no idea what it's capable of on the run. certainly not 6min miles, but 6:30s?? 7:30s? i don't know. it's weird to have no confidence in something that used to be my ace-in-the whole (i.e., the run).

FMC i yam so sleeeepeeeeeeeee. will u come do my work for me pleeees......

No way José, I'm outta here. I got a big 'ol martini with my name on it, I can hear it now, what's that martini? You want me to come fetch you?
Ciao Quapa, have a fantastic weekend. Be looking for the updates.
