    Tour of Elk Grove

    New Rule: Write race report within 48 hours of ending race. That whole full time job and training keeps eating into my time to write and before I know it, it’s a week from the time I crossed that finishing line. Last weekend was Tour…

    The Next Chapter

    With the conclusion of NVGP 2013, this means break time! I’ve now had a few days of no riding! Ok confession, I did an AM spin with a friend Monday morning, but just to enjoy the conversation. It’s been absolutely wonderful catching my breath! I…

    NVGP Day 2

    I had that good feeling heading into 93 miles. I wasn’t really nervous even though this was the longest road race I’d had ever raced. We started out SO conservatively which was very surprising since there was a KOM at mile 5 and mile 10,…

    NVGP Quick Post: Day one

    Day one is over…which I’m very happy about. I haven’t even looked at my results but I know where I stand. Honestly I wasn’t mentally ready at all for day one. Getting back from Tulsa (12 hrs in the car Monday) and not taking a…

    Half The Road

    A friend sent me this video and I feel the need to share it. It is incredibly true how under valued the women’s racing is. Every time I make it to a large race I hear more and more about underfunded teams. Then of course…

    Last or First?

    After posting From Rollers to Redlands a few people shared an article that had been written just a few weeks prior. I hadn’t read the article until after Redlands (and posting). It’s worth the read! This Is Not a Story About Last Place As a…

    From Rollers to Redlands

    Along with all the great entries I look forward to posting here, I feel it’s only appropriate to share with you an entry that isn’t as “great”. I started this post last night on the plane and wrote nearly two pages before realizing even I…
