Well it has been two weeks since I left the Ohio winter for some "Sirius" triathlon training. I am living out in the southern California desert training with my coach, Siri Lindley, and the other Team Sirius athletes. This has been a whole new adventure for me. As a rookie pro, training with some of the world's greatest professional triathletes, can be a bit intimidating. I have to say, however, that this is the most welcoming and energetic group I have ever met. I can't imagine being anywhere else right now and know that this fabulous ride has only just begun.
The weather hasn't been quite what you would imagine a desert would be like. In two weeks we've had rain, snow, horrific winds, and also plenty of sun. I am still waiting for the warmer temperature, as we are layering up every morning. I imagine in a few weeks I may regret saying that.... I do not have a car here, so after a hard session, my idea of fun is not getting back on my bike to ride home and push through the wind at barely 5mph....What won't kill me can only make me stronger, right?!?!
