Home Sweet Home

It's been a long break since my last ride, as the Race Across America consumed much of the month of June. I missed a lot while I was away -- especially the ending of the boys' school year -- but Mike did a stellar job at keeping things humming along in my absence. (Including taking care of our crazy dog, Rigby, Lord of the Rings, who developed an ear infection the week before I left for Oceanside.)

I didn't get a chance to get in any workouts while I was crewing RAAM -- there just wasn't a stitch of free time available. 16-20 hour days, with 3-4 hours of sleep... it was tough. I'm hoping I haven't slipped too far off the rails from where I was at pre-RAAM, and can rebound quickly. Coach Shayne is getting ready to ramp up my training plan for the season on Monday. Summer is here -- It's good to be home.
