One day and one race at a time

I'm packing food and equipment, getting ready to leave for the Luray races after lunch. Yikes, it's really here!! I'm taking things one day and one race at a time.

This week we got the official schedule for the Endurance Films Racing Team at USAT Age Group Nationals so that is suddenly feeling very real. Among the events, it includes plans for a group ride and group swim. I am glad that I will be scheduled and busy while I am there. One of our sponsors, Jack Kane Custom Bikes, is creating a custom Endurance Films Racing Team bike to be unveiled at the race. It reminds me of the bike version of Orange County Choppers.

I'm not the only busy family member. Robert and the kids have been camping at the New River with friends all week, and I've been dropping in on them for the afternoons. They will get back Sunday, as will I, and then the house will become laundry/muck-out central. Monday is meet the teacher night for both kids and they start school Wednesday. Spencer will be going to the middle school and that means the kids will be on two different schedules. Annd then I leave on Thursday for Age Group Nationals (talk about mom guilt!). My bike is going up with one family, I am flying one-way to Burlington, and then I am driving back with two girls from the area.

A little craziness is good for us all once in a while. Then regular life seems so much easier!
