It's going to be a trip! I can't believe I'm about to start my junior year of college, my little brother is going to be a senior in high school, and I'm going to say goodbye to the velodrome for a little while.
This summer has been incredible. Racing, riding, working...living.
When i started this journey to colorado springs, i was sleeping on couches, hopping all over the place. I owe Clay Worthington and the Tyson family a very very large thank you. Offering up their places until i could find an apartment that would allow a 3 month lease. And then, once i did find a place, leaving for the fixed gear, then hopping over to wisconsin with Cari for Toad, then coming back, then gone for a month for Superweek, and then back for qualifiers. It's almost like i never stopped, and i loved it. Traveling, airports, driving, eating at different place. I love it.

I made one last trip up Cheyenne yesterday. The only way for me to climb better, is for me to get myself up a hill. So that climb seems fitting. It's harder than i ever imagined, but i did it. I've done it multipled times, and i like to think i go faster and faster each time. Which probably isn't always true, but it's a good thought.

Being able to train almost on a daily basis on the velodrome. Having the best coaches. Ones that encourage the crap out of me, even when, it's quite apparent it isn't my greatest day. It is true that i have watched more movies than ever before, that i have become addicted to Hulu and coffee, but I've come to realize that being in seclusion is a good thing for me. It gives me no distractions, a chance to really focus on what i want, what i can achieve. And it put my dreams back in clear focus. It's like a grounding center, giving me the ability to come back, be alone, and rethink things through. It's a complete enviornment that i can control.
|I won't miss my flooded street.|
So, I'm going back to school. Well, for as much as ill be in school. I can't explain how much i am looking forward to Collegiate Track Nationals, and my first Elites. I am excited for Maddie Godby to be returning to the track, after her massive crash at Junior World Championships. I've got a new bike, track racing wheels, saddle. So things are piecing their way together.
