Greetings from Upstate New York. I've been here in Glens Falls, New York since Saturday evening and will be heading to Placid tomorrow (wed) for the remainder of the week. I've enjoyed arriving out here a little early as it has allowed me to adjust to the time zone and climate (much more humid here). I should also get a chance to ride a couple sections of the course before we race on Sunday. I have not done this race before and I'm looking forward to racing on a new course (and a new month; never had an IM in July). I got out of Boulder just as it was getting ridiculously hot; and even though its pretty warm here, it seems mellow compared to the 100-degree desert days back home. We didn't have much of a summer last year, but mother nature is making up for it right now.
At any rate, all has been going well over the last couple months and I'm looking forward to getting back at it on Sunday. I'll be sure to turn around a quick race report after I race.
