I just got an e-mail from my friend Dawn over at Splish. And although I don’t like to unveil my suits before a race, i just love the new one that Ira will be designing for me for Florida. It will be a white suit with PINK alligators! I have been thinking a lot of what would be a good match for my pink camo disk wheel and my skull and cross bones helmut. I also wanted to capture a spirit of Floirda. At first I was just thinking about recycling my absolute favorite suit of “Yeah Baby”, however, I though thought Pink Alligators would add some flavor and represent Florida well!
Training has been going really well so far. I have been a little tired this week as I just traveled back from the Eastern Shore in Maryland for a friends wedding. My friends’, Sara, wedding was simply elegant and beautiful. She was married on her families farm right on the water. It was the first ceremony that the guest were allowed to drink.
I stayed with my best girlfriend ever, Theresa, and my serrogate mother and father, Susan and Murray. We had the time of our lives.
We returned to Baltimore Sunday afternoon. Being there, especially during the fall months, really made me miss it a lot. On Monday I was lucky enough to be able to ride my bike through the horse country of Baltimore County….AHHHHH I miss it!
Now that I am back home, it’s back to the grindstone. I am training really hard this week and next week. We leave for Hawaii the 10th and then I will start my taper for Florida four weeks out. I am feeling really good about my race and my fitness is better than ever!
