|4 of the Nytro Team 2017|
This year, with no kids at home any more AND more importantly being healthy it was a girls road trip weekend! Liz, Les and I headed out on Saturday afternoon. We literally rolled in the park for registration at 3:50 just time to get our packets and experience the amazing expo (not) which was Swim West tent ( who I love by the way, but hello? no expo) I did want some ez laces but there were 9 people in line so did not wait. I guess you are the only game in town, it pays off for sure!
We had a room at La Quinta Homewood Suites- about as close as you can stay and it was just fine. A nice suite with 2 rooms and we got to working doing all that pre - race fun, pasting stickers on and sorting gear, finding pins, all the while Les and I completely shit talking each other. "here let me pump your tires to 220 psi" " here try this - really raw sauerkraut is great pre- race" and it went on and on. We ate in
I tried a "new" dinner of roasted red potatoes, grilled chicken and salsa with a mashed avocado. Lots of salt and plenty of Nuun, The Right Stuff and any other non alcoholic fluid- the dessrt is DRY!.
I love the support of my husband but it is fun to have 3 girls yakking away and getting ready for the race. And 3 like minded girls who had the lights out at 7:30 and an alarm set for 4am. We all wake up early and are luckily all friendly and chatty in the am.... Coffee- check for Les and I and another new meal. Unsweetened applesauce, protein powder and a banana. Yummm said no one really. Its like bland baby food.
|aero helmet are so flattering, said no one ever|
I am flying as in 35mph. The light bulb should have gone off as my power was nothing stellar and

Fun race! Happy okay elated to FINALLY lay down a decent run, it has been 4 years. I raced hard- Monday and Tuesday I could feel it- yes indeed.
