Austin Texas Bound

This entry was posted in Racing on by .

The temperatures in Austin look great. At least for a bit. Ann and Stanley are always welcoming. And I know the riding. Seems like the right place to go and train for awhile. I don’t have a ticket to Europe yet. I hate planning too far ahead. The race is 3 weeks away. I don’t think my form is that far off. But, I’m not sure. Thursday, when it was 70, and I wasn’t hauling around all the extra stuff you have to wear at 25 degrees, I felt pretty alright. But riding in thermal tights, winter boots, etc., I feel slow and lethargic.

We’ll see today. It is supposed to get up to the lower 40’s today. There is a group ride from my house at noon. I doubt I can get these guys to go out for more than a couple hours, but that’s okay.

My junior/high school girlfriend, Sara, is in town for the holidays. She lives in Genoa, Italy, but her mom lives in Topeka. She has a 6 year old daughter, Iolanda, and we’re taking Iolanda out to the country and go dog walking after the ride. She wants a puppy something seriously, but living in an apartment in an European city is hard for that. It should be fun.

After that, I’m going to try to round up everything I think I might need for the next month and pack up. I should be driving early tomorrow morning, but it never goes as planned.

I got this cup at McDonalds. “Magic little beans?” I heard that Starbucks bottom line is being hurt from McDonalds because of coffee. McDonalds’ coffee is not Starbucks coffee.

    Free coffee at Juan Pelotas on Friday if you ride up on your bike. They have some kick ass coffee.
