Tom and I will both be heading up to Lutsen this weekend for our first Lutsen99er experience. Yes that's right....TOM IS RACING TOO!! I cannot be more excited about this. I love it when Tom supports me, but I love it so much more when we get to race together. This only happens a few times a year and I promise to cherish this moment like it's going out of style! I'm also jacked because my whole family (parents, and brothers family) is making a fun weekend out of this. It's guaranteed that I'll have a couple of cute little kiddos to post race recovery swim with!
Lutsen holds a special place in my heart because the Lutsen39er back in 2012 was my 2nd ever mountain bike race....it was also the first race that I ever won, period. I remember I was so shocked...I was like "what does one do when she wins a race??" So I just smiled and fell on top of my bike.
The past few weeks have been so full of fun, that I've had zero time to blog about it. I was able to enjoy a mother daughter weekend with my mom, aunt and cousin. We shopped, I bought girly stuff at the art fair, we tasted wine, and then I had my first ever Vodka Martini...it was fantastic.
Michigan BFF, Danielle. Then, she even brought me an umbrella on race day and then proceeded to cheer with me in the rain. That's what friends are for.
Alright, now it's time to pack up the bike for tomorrow's bike fit with the Bicycle Fit Guru (yes!!!) and a tubeless tire swaparoo with Nick at Tonka Cycle & Ski. Putting the finishing touches on my new favorite bike ever!!! Did I mention how much I hate tires?
