Testing results…

Again, I have to know what to post and what not to post.  I am not going to be the one who spills all our national secrets.  Hey, at least now I know how it feels to be the federal conservatives!

The testing was a shock to the system.  I almost said it was a blow to my ego, but I knew I’d be somewhere around where I am, which isn’t going to win any medals if I had to race tomorrow, but what else can I expect three and a half weeks into training?  I’m here for a long time, not a good time – so have a good time, the sun can’t shine everyday.  That’s not how the song goes.

The outcome from today is that I have been invited to attend a camp in Sacramento starting the day after tomorrow.  I say the outcome from ‘today’ as apposed to ‘racing’ because my invite has more to do with my track record over the years than my performance today – oh, and probably also something to do with my tenacity just to go through the testing today.  It pays to work hard all the time.

I will miss Easter for the first time with Mira, and I will miss Bowen’s first Easter ever.  It’s not like Bowen will know what’s going on – but I love how excited Mira gets on Easter morning.  Rachel is such a strong support.  She is doing her masters and raising our family on her own while I run off for 12 days.  I owe her big.
