In the spirit of constant travel, I'm off to Chicago early this afternoon. I will not be able to follow Kona online all day long which is a bit disappointing, but I'm glad to be able to leave 17 degrees and snow for 40 degrees and wind. My friend is racing the Chicago Marathon tomorrow morning and I am going along to make sure he gets out everything he put into this event. I should be able to get a nice perspective of the city riding a mtn bike around the course on Sunday. Then its back to Boulder early on Monday to get in my final few weeks of training before Ironman Florida. Hopefully the snow will be gone when I get back, but I've already adjusted to completing more and more training indoors.
Good luck to everyone racing today. I wish I was with you; next year I will be.
