It has been about 2 weeks since I have been on the bike or updated this blog. My hope is that you are getting antsy for the next update; after all, they say that absence makes the heart grow fonder.
Whoever coined this phrase was spot on. Two weeks without riding with my team has made me realize what an important part all of you have become in my life in less than a year. The friendships I have made--on and off the road--in the last 9 months have been forged by common goals, suffering, and celebrations. This makes for some strong bonds that are second only to my marriage.
I should be back on the bike next week and similarly updating the blog in a more consistent manner. I actually look forward to the Tour de France to be over so that cycling coverage will be less myopic. Stay tuned for new updates, keep training hard for upcoming races, start thinking about goals for next year, and be sure to have fun.
