As Huey Lewis says, It is hip to be square.
All the forgone beers, watching what I eat and working out most every day, we shall see if it pays dividends. I am feeling really good about this race coming up, the Moses Lake Olympic distance (well just shy of Olympic) despite the fact that it might be too warm for wet-suits and the fact that I climbed Mt Baker on Sunday and my legs have felt much better, it could be worse. I am looking forward to a great weekend of racing followed by some nice relaxation with some of my favorite people. Usually I like to put in some more work before a race, with a true taper program but I feel like I have been sitting around trying to recover from the Baker climb that I hope it all comes around in time. The course should be hot, windy, hot and flat. Sounds like a blast. I am looking forward to a fast run though and Budu racing usually puts on great events. I am hoping for a top 5 finish and if all conditions are right a time of around 2 hours and 3 minutes. Time will tell!
