I'm getting things wrapped up for Boise. My second pair of DeSoto tri shorts had an inseam blow-out (my first pair had both inseams unravel after 30 min of cycling - not cool! They were nice and sent a replacement pair, but I'm having the same issue - after 6 rides.). I'm done with DeSoto and got 2 pairs of shorts at Tri on the Run to test out. One Zoot and one Louis Garneau. The sales girl owns both of the pairs that I got and loves them, so here's hoping.... At least I have a weekend to test them out properly!
My coach changed up my weekend plan (I guess he didn't realize my race was in 2 weeks? I dunno...). I was supposed to so a 1 hr run on Saturday and a 2 hr ride / 80 min run Sunday. This has been changed to a 14 mile run Saturday and a 60 mile ride on Sunday. I'm actually ok with this, since I haven't run or ridden this distance since LoneStar, 5 weeks ago. Headed back to Chappell Hill for the ride, which I'm hoping will give me confidence.
I was recently accepted to be part of Team Jamba Juice, as part of http://www.activeambassadors.com/. I'm SUPER excited, as this is my first "sponsorship". I get a logo'd set of shirt/shorts/visor and need to wear them out at 3 local races between now and September. I love Jamba Juice, so this is a good fit. I should be getting JJ gift cards with my sponsor package, so if you want some, just holler! Warning, though, as I may make you meet me out during a training run or something for you to "earn" your card.
And in other news, my father-in-law ended up having his open heart surgery yesterday. Planned for a valve replacement and single bypass. Ended up doing the valve replament and 4 bypasses (eeps). He came out of surgery and is off the ventilator, so that's good news.
