|Been thinking on this one lately, Thanks for sharing, Kir!|
It's been a busy couple weeks as I'm in the final push for Ironman Los Cabos (4 weeks to go!), but again, I find myself saying, "They call this training?" I seem to be head down, working hard (on the trainer, at work, in the pool, etc) during the week...not much room to breathe, but making space for some epic weekends.
|GET IT DONE!|
|You know you're close to Palm Springs when....|

So, Friday afternoon (of this current weekend), I headed out to Tucson, AZ to see a bunch of friends who live here to put in another solid 3-day punch for IMLos Cabos. I'm lucky enough to be shacking up chez Samatha McGlone where the good times flow and the espresso never runs dry..
|Solo road trip calls for some #selfies, no?|
Saturday, Jordan and I joined her coach, Chris Hauth, and his "campers" for a long brick to Patagonia. 100mile ride and a 10k t-run (where I just maybe almost kinda sorta cracked in the last mile). Very windy conditions, but a flawless training day thanks to Chris & SAG Monkey Nick (This SAG Monkey situation is AH-mazing...A professional soigneur for any old Joe ;) . Nick takes care of the bikes, supplies food/water, bakes delicious ride snacks and even has a cooler of beer and comfy chairs at the end. First class support all the way- check him out if you ever need training support)

|Riding in style again- on Hauth's wheel ALL DAY. Wind, what wind?|
Now, it's only Sunday and I still have 2.5 full days to make the most of this traincation..Will keep you posted...Of for a family run long on the trails of the dirty T!
