Tomorrow, Chelsea and I head off to Texas for my first race of the 2014 season. This will also be my first time racing Texas 70.3 in Galveston. I have heard great things about this race and knew at some point I would toe the line to experience it for myself. Known for its flat, yet windy conditions- which mind you is completely different than what I have here in Charlottesville (I get about 1k of climbing in every 12-15 miles of riding), I am excited to see what kind of race I can put together. There is always that feeling you get that first race of the year - the unknown- did I prepare myself for the season? Did I eat correctly? Did I get enough sleep? At this point being only 4 days out the best thing I can do is get my sleep, get a massage and enjoy the trip. With 37 male pros on the start list it will be fun to get out there and see where I am at. Follow the race while it happens here..... the season for me starts this Sunday!
