Taper Week

Well TransIowa is this week and it is time for a taper. This week is going to be about getting stuff packed up and getting everything situated for a Thursday departure!

7 days from now we will be driving home and I will be prepping my race report.

My only prayer is for safe travel to and from, for safety for my family while I am riding, and for my safety on the road. If I finish - I finish. If not, I have prepared as well as I could have and will not feel bad at all. It has been a great journey!

TransIowa Link

I have had people asking about the TransIowa and here is the linky dinky do:

Check it out and let me know what you think :)

Training is culminating. 12 days and counting to the start.

Well I think I should definitely mention the sponsors that I have lined up this year.

Brooks Inspire Daily Program - I love Brooks running shoes and gear and was very happy with them bringing me onboard this program. I tried to attend a weekend clinic they have in Washington, but there was too many interested people and I missed out in the lottery selection - Unlike my Mt. Washington Road Race :)

Twin Six: Some cool bike gear - Jerseys, T-Shirts, Hats, Socks, etc... This stuff is old school looking but very good quality. I would highly recommend if you love the 2 wheels then go check out their site. In the near future I will be listed on their site and you can read my bio that I put up there. I am psyched about that!

Always working for more sponsors so keep your eye out. If you have any suggestions besides the loony bin drop me a line :)

Have a great day!

TransIowa Update

Howdy everyone. Training has been going very good. I have been getting some good mileage in and this coming weekend I am going overnight on the bike to see how I handle that aspect of the race. To be honest with you that is the only part that is worrying me at all. I feel that I have been training very well and logging a lot of time on the bike so hopefully it all plays out for a successful run at the TransIowa.

I have my new ride for it also. Picked it up Saturday and it is a Masi Speciale Randonneur. It was substantially less expensive than the Salsa Fargo that I wanted and for what I am going to use it for will be perfect. Pictures to come in the near future.

Well as training goes that is about all right now. Will post some pictures this week from my rides and the overnighter this coming weekend. Should be interesting :)
