limbo

What to say.
I live in the Gap - we got smashed with an incredibly powerful microburst in the supercell storm last sunday. Didn't get power back until bedtime on Tuesday. Damaged roof, smashed windows, amazing amount of debris to clean up, insurance companies to keep you on hold, all food in fridge and freezer gone. Cleaned up as best we could, and now living in a giant tent (tarps on the roof) but still a hell of a lot better off than some around these parts.

Ok, crisis over - time to focus on Kona. Great brekkie ride with the boys on sunday morning, followed by the next crisis.

Husband G stacks his bike badly jumping down a staircase and calls me to tell me a) to pick him up and b) he doesn't quite know where he is. Result = concussion, and badly busted thumb. Now waiting to hear from the ortho hand specialist for an appointment to discuss surgery.

And Kona..... anyone's guess.......

Nationals anyone?

Hey Nick, did you make it home without getting killed for being late? nice blog - love the cartoon bubbbles...
life is definitely a little craptacular at the moment. Live in the gap = smashed, busted husband = not fun, and missing out on kona = devastation. when you work hard it is difficult to put it all in the 'it's only a race' box and get over it. Will know for sure today when I take G to the ortho. Fingers crossed!
Catch u on the trails soon...

A dream that was once lost but now found... said...

Stay focused Rach and you will do great. Good luck.

Just another test of your determination! I'm sure you'll come through in flying colours, one way or another.
