The whole process of packing bags, bikes, and organizing a house sitter is sometimes overwhelming. The day of departure is a bit stressful….especailly without coffee. I am decaffenating myself 3 days out before the CA half to test the way I will react to it on race day. I have to say, I miss the caffeine right now and I am not motivated to pack my bags at all. We leave today at noon. We still have 3 hours beofre departure. Our house is a mess and I would be embarrassed to leave it this way for Jen (house sitter and RE partner extrordinair). I don’t plan on training today as I have found that training on departure day adds to the stress as well as adds to my dehydration inssues.
Stay tuned for race week details and hopefully pictures!
