The Last Two Weeks…

Monday, March 21st, 2011

have been a whirlwind.

Tuesday March 8th- Leave Austin, Texas

Wednesday March 9th-  Arrive Abu Dhabi sans bike

Thursday March 10th- Visit the Mosque, wait until 1:00am for my bike but still a no show

Friday March 11th- Bike arrives 2 hours before check in.

Saturday- Abu Dhabi race

Unfortunately not the race I was hoping for and ended with my first DNF as a professional.

Sunday- Leave Abu Dhabi

Sunday p.m.- Arrive Singapore.  Camped out in Terminal 2 for 10 hours.  Felt a bit like Tom Hanks in the movie The Terminal.

Monday- Arrive Krabi, Thailand.  Bike made it.  Easy ride with B.

Tuesday- Photo shoot with sponsors (Avia, 2xu, John Cobb), e-mail Singapore 70.3 race director to see if I can get a start for the race

The race director e-mailed back and said that I could get a start since someone dropped out last minute.  Now I just needed to ask Coach is I should race.  His answer was of course yes but he didn’t know if I would be able to get in.  Little did he know that I had already e-mailed the race director the day before!

Wednesday-More photo shoot with sponsors at the beach.  Short run in the morning.  Spent the day on the boat.  Home by 10pm.

Thursday- More photo shoot with sponsors.  Brick and afternoon swim.

Friday-   Easy bike, packed biked, short swim.  Leave Krabi, Thailand

Friday p.m.- Arrive Singapore. Eat at airport.  Grocery shop at airport.  Arrive at homestay at 8pm.

Saturday- pre race events for Singapore 70.3

Sunday- Singapore 70.3 race

2nd overall.  It was a good effort all things considered.  Of course, I would have liked the win, but it was good to see my fellow TeamTBB (TeamTBB USA) teammate Mary Beth Ellis take home 1st.

Monday- Leave Singapore.  Arrive Krabi, Thailand

Now back at training camp ready to train hard hopefully uninterrupted!

Not the blog I had in mind to write but this gives you an idea why I haven’t blogged in a few weeks!
