Wave of my future....Team Advil Chapstick

Well 2008 is almost here, and in case some of you were wondering... I WILL be racing!! Yippee :) When the new season comes along I will have traded in the beer and tea (Victory Brewing 2005-2006 /TEAm Lipton 2007)for some lip smacking chapstick and and the best ibuprofen on the market. uh-huh...good stuff!

and of course, we will be riding FUJI BIKES. We are riding that super awesome frame, pretty isn't it :)

happy me. what an awesome team!

interesting statistic

80% of the female executives at Fortune 500 companies identified themselves as former “tomboys” — having played sports.



One of my favorite quotes from this season's holiday:

"I don't eat chocolate, my body is a temple designed to only hold whiskey and In and Out burgers."

just a few holiday side notes:

1.) I'm thinking it's a sign that the Wildman is growing up (Wildman is my baby brother), considering his Christmas present from me came from Crate and Barrel. I mean really, did anyone EVER think it would be appropriate for Todd to get gifts (that he wants!) from a place like that ;-)

2.) Moms with boys go absolutely nuts on girls for Christmas. After all the years of hot wheels and dinosaurs and action figures, it can finally be all about ribbons and bows and pink and princesses!

3.) The drive to family is ALWAYS worth it...even if it means missing out on a lingerie christmas party ( ;-)

4.) No I don't feel guilty planning a bike ride for Christmas morning.... ahem.

Have you ever noticed that when you head into new directions that there are always a few bumps along the path?
Long story short, I broke my phone and my no pictures for now :(

no fun......

so i'm driving in traffic and i'm on my cell with my dad. i tell him i better go so i can pay attention to the highway change coming up...on average i drive about 3-5 highways each time i head out for dealer visits. he says to me, "ok but honey please drive safe".. i promptly respond by saying that it's not hard to be safe when you're going 5mph!!! ughhh

More travel adventures...

Lets see... since I am now a traveling sales girl by day, and off-season racer in training by night....I have entered into a whole new realm in the workout world. In less than one month, I have done "gym time" in Temecula, Pacific Beach, Pasadena, Corona and Huntington Beach..

Gettin' around :)

Have to chuckle...

I've definitely had my share of trying out new eateries lately. Lets the last week, I found great fish tacos in Pacific Beach, and awesome sushi in ummm where was I, oh yea Poway (ever heard of it? well there are a lot of people there)...then I had some darn good tasty tortilla soup right here in HB. I reckon by the end of this week I'll have eatery reports from San Diego, Lake Elsinore...and possibly Santa Barbara, but no way in Vegas...(that'll have to wait a few weeks).

Get the picture?

By the way...I AM TRAINING.
(i just sell bikes between workouts now instead of surfing the web..hahaha)

Who was there?

Yes, it was a beautiful and sunny day out here in Southern California, and I absolutely cannot complain about the weather (heck...i didn't even wear knee warmers!), however today's training ride reminded me of the treacherous Oak Glen Stage at Redlands a few years back. No, not the climbing portion that we were all anticipating (and by the way...i am NOT doing big climbs like that right now hahaha!), but remember that crazy wind on that day that drew us out into a single file string for over twenty miles!! It was a horrendous day. It was God-awful bad. Today was just like that. Thank god this time there was no Ina Teutenberg dragging my ass along the gutter....whew...lucky me.

so, in case you are all wondering....yes i am training :)
