This week I began the task of rebuilding my fitness for the 2013 season. I had a solid block of easy time off up until now and even though I was really anxious about loosing my strength, it really did me some good to have time off. I feel fresh and rested, my body is responding well to increased training...feeling rejuvenated and energised with each day. My mind is in a better place as well and I am actually looking forward to the challenge of preparing for some tough races and fast fields in 2013.
One big development in the past couple of weeks is that Specialized has gotten on board as one of my new sponsors for 2013. This marks a huge milestone for me because Specialized has always been on my list of dream sponsors and I have coveted and enjoyed their products for years. I have to give special thanks to the guys at Spokesman and Famly Cycling Center as well as many friends working their connections to make this happen.
From a personal standpoint, things have been really tough lately and I have become more appreciatie than ever for the my community, friends and loved ones. I am so lucky to be able to do the things and have the adventures that I do. Here is some stuff I have been up to.
Swim 14,750 yds
Bike 11 hrs
Run 30 mi
