PA to NJ

Road trip! Ok, so it only took 3 or so hours to get to Trenton today but it was still a road trip.

Does anyone else do this to themselves too????? All the stuff I wanted in the car was right by my feet. What is the deal!? I always do that. Always.

For most of (ok - ALL of) the drive it was misty out. Not really raining but just misty enough to need your windshield wipers on....along with needing a really good map because as you can see the MAIN sign for the road we were looking for had been knocked over. Lovely.

Another lovely thing is the gas prices here. A $1 something??

Got to the course just in time to almost get a full lap in. Finished my routine in the dark on the pavement dodging deer and cars on the tiny road that led in and out of the park. Excellent. It was a balmy 60 out which compared to Utah right now seemed down right warm. Loving every minute of that in the dark tonight.

Conditions this year here are soupier than normal. Last year it was pretty dry. But its going to be muddier race tomorrow especially with this forecast that I just looked at:

Rain and patchy fog in the morning...then showers with a chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon. Precipitation may be heavy at times. Highs in the mid 60s. South winds 10 to 15 mph with gusts up to 25 mph. Chance of rain near 100 percent

If this is the case, I seriously cannot wait to race!!! It is going to be fun times!

Alicia is our fellow Velo Bella ripper. She will be looking for a podium spot tomorrow morning in her race. She has so many medals in her room all over her wall that this shouldn't be a problem. Good luck Alicia!!!

that's a female thing, regarding filling up the foot area of the car with every item imaginable. don't fight it, you won't win.

books, purse, food,water, sleeping items, first aid kit, dvd player, ipod, camera, jacket, hat, gloves, spare socks, more snacks, scarf, spare sunglasses, map, gps, cell phone, chargers, lap top, lotion, another book, magazines, chapstick you can't find...


Hmmmm, I am trying to remember how you got into my backpack. Pretty accurate description!
