Nashville was an exciting time for me. I haven't left yet, but I do leave tomorrow morning. I miss my bike and hope to be back on it on Wednesday.

So I found out yesterday from my friend at Martin Guitar that I can go to Nashville with them on Tuesday! I'm so excited! I'm going to a NAMM conference and will be there for a week. This trip should be an incredible opportunity! I'm so excited!

So, two items of big news today!

1. I will hit 1000 miles on my bike for this summer today with 28 miles today. (I can't believe how fast it all adds up!)

2. I have a meeting on Friday at 9 AM with someone who may be willing to sponsor my trip or help me find sponsors to Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, and Vietnam!

I'm going to need some advice: I need to make sure I have a solid plan.

The reason for the trip
The supplies
The Cost
Transport of Information
All that stuff.

So, let the planning begin! This is going to be exciting! Give me all your wisdom and advice!

Tennis and Bikes

Today I went to play tennis with my mom and I realized that I'm not so good... I would like to be though. It is really a fun sport to play. On our way home, we saw my old Cross Country and Track coach riding his bike. We stopped and I asked him if he wanted to go on a ride. We went for a 14 mile bike ride. It was fun to catch up with him and I enjoyed the much slower pace. It is fun to meet up with old friends and make new friends and I thinking biking is a great way to do it!

Time Trial

Today I rode the Kampeska Classic Time Trial. It was a nice fun 14 mile ride... This course has a few hills, but nothing to the likes of Nebraska. I had a time of 45.21 which I was hoping to break 44, but I had a major error as I turned a corner and almost crashed. It took me a lot to regain my speed of 23 mph, but I'm glad I didn't crash. I won my age division and broke the course record today for my age group, but I got beat. I'm kinda disappointed about that. I didn't even know that there was another women ahead of me that I was competing with. She had a time of 42.57, so I'm pretty sure I couldn't have beaten her, but more props to her! It was fun to work that hard and have a lot of speed. I've had some challenging riding this spring already and can only hope for more this summer.

43 miles

I went for a 43 mile ride today. It was nice and chilly out there... After I rode, I came back made me a whole box of Annie's Mac and Cheese (Organic, good for the Environment, 25 grams of protein, 560 calories.) Pretty sure it was one of the best things I've eaten ever.

Lewis and Clark

Today I went hiking at Lewis and Clark lake with Eric. It was beautiful! My new plan is to ride my bike to the park, run the nature trail and swim in the lake. Maybe a tri or two would be a fun thing to do this summer. (A mini) I have been training for a half marathon, but, I'm going to have to get up earlier because it gets warmer and my runs are taking longer... So, I'm excited to maybe get some swimming in too! Life is good right now. Love my Job, Love where I live, Love it... Life is good.
