The past two days were filled with training, coaching and catching up with emails. Most of all, I am finally packed for my trip! I leave tomorrow for Georgia!!! I will be spending the next 4 days in Georgia, staying in beautiful Cabins in the mountains, about an hour north of Atlanta. Although I will have to force myself to sit in the car for over 8 hours (I have plenty of reading, scrapbooking and toys to keep me busy!) I am super excited to get there! There will be 10 of us staying in 2 cabins and we will be watching stage 4 and 5 of the Tour de Georgia. While we aren't riding 50-60 miles in the hills (Jared says that's the plan :0 ,I will be relaxing without my computer and my cell phone without service and truely loving my time, relaxing with the guys. Oh, did I mention I will be spending the next 4 days with 9 Gearlink Cycling guys!! That's a lot of testosterone and I'm sure a lot of making fun of Marni! It's just that easy! hehe. And being the only vegetarian with a bunch of guys...that should make for lots of great stories! Don't worry, I always have my camera!
Congrats to all those who raced this past weekend in good and bad weather conditions. A BIG congrats to the Gearlink guys who tested their skills at the Jacksonville Cycling Classic. Karel, once again, surprised us all and pulled out a 36th place crit finish, out of a starting field of over 150 for Pro 1,2 at 8:30 pm. Then, he turned around on sun afternnoon at 12:30pm and raced 98 miles in the wind for an amazing 11th place finish. Ray, Will, Mirek and the rest of gang also did GREAT!!
Have a wonderful week everyone!
