I'm currently in Austin getting some training done before smacking down in Des Moines on September 4. It's hot here, very hot. Not a day cooler than 40°C, and no rain for the foreseeable future. I've only just started training again since the race in New York, I had to take 5 days off with illness. I not sure what it was from, I could have been carrying a bug for some time and the race put me over, or I could have simply got a bad dose of the Hudson down in me. Either way, I hope the time off helps me to pedal circles instead of squares.
