And now for the *other* race plans...
I decided just before the Calgary 70.3 race that I really wanted to race the Kelowna Apple Tri this year (Aug.19), and then probably the Subaru Banff Tri on Sept. 8. Around that time, a few people suggested to me that I should race the Elite race in Kelowna (ITU Pan American Cup), which sounded like a pretty wacky idea. So I looked into it just for fun and got myself draft-legal certified and submitted my International Competition Card (ICC) application to TriCan. I found out a few days ago my ICC was approved and I am now on the start list for Elite women in Kelowna this Sunday!
Ummm- what have I gotten myself into?
My trusty old road bike, all ready to go
-Finish the race (i.e. don't get lapped on the bike)
-Don't finish last
-Don't embarrass myself
I know this is an amazing opportunity and I'm grateful for a chance to race with the elite girls. We'll see what happens on Sunday!
Geoff and I leave super early on Friday morning as apparently there is an elite race briefing at 5pm that is mandatory. And the rugrats (Hugo & Wylie) are coming along as well! Road trip with the monsters!
