Smooth shifting from here on out.

I am so happy that my tri bike is back from a tune-up. She was having trouble shifting up to the big ring, so a quick visit to Volker Bicycles, and she was good to go! (Note: I have no affiliation with Volker. I just really like their shop… and supporting local shops kicks ass!)

Training continues at our house. It was pretty brisk last night, so Tatum stayed home. (He might be smarted than the rest of us). Walking back home from campus, I noticed my IT band was feeling a little cranky… likely due from running too much on pavement and not enough trail. So I will make it a priority to only do short runs on the pavement. I don’t need another IT band flare right now. My muscles and joints are stiff enough from autoimmune without adding in the IT band.

The boys are really pumped about the Pi Day race, because there is pie at the end! YAY! But I can’t help but think Tatum might be a little disappointed in not getting a medal for his first 5K. Big brother Bowie has a wall of medals and hey, bling is awesome. So I decided to start researching if I can by a pie themed medal online somewhere to give the boys when they finish. I mean, a 9 year old deserves a medal for a trail half too, right?

Speaking of races, I do have 2 two that I am signed up to do. BibRave Pro was kind enough to secure me an entry in both Hospital Hill Half and KC Marathon. I’ve run both a few times and will have training commentary and insider tips coming up. But until then, I do have a discount code you can use for Hospital Hill’s suite of races. (I will get back to you on KC Marathon). You can use “BIBRAVE” for 10% off the 5K, 10K, Half, and Re-Run races. (Not valid on family 5K).
