RIDE HER BIKE OF COURSE!!!
Thanks to EVOC for making the best bike box ever...as a result bringing my bike on this trip was a piece of cake. For the first time I even put the Broadaxe together and packed it up all by myself. I ALMOST felt like a mechanic.

During the week I would make the 30 min trek over to Lakeshore Drive to crank out some power intervals. There were plenty of runners and cyclists and I felt safe during these hot, humid evenings. In the end I was rewarded with palm trees and amazing sunsets!!
Saturday's ride took me along some quiet country roads, past many horse ranches and incredible homes. I rode pretty close to the center of Louisiana's multi-million dollar horse industry. I could almost taste the cash!
|Is that a TCF Bank? Nope, it's just someones house|
This 50+ mile ride ended here!
This weekend I was so excited to be home that I couldn't wait to shred 40 miles of Elm Creek dirt at the Menacing 40. It was a blast, except I think I crashed better than I rode! But, what's not to love about a $30 race on amazing trails with hot dogs and beers afterwards? Thanks Maple Grove Cycling, MORC and Three Rivers Park District for a great day on the trails!
Yesterday we woke up at 4:30 am (OUCH!) for Chisago Lakes Tri! The weather was perfect and it seemed like everyone had great races...I love when that happens! Lisa had a fabulous race and took home the Gold for her age group!
