This weekend we were at our friends Maija and Adam's wedding. Another beautiful wedding outside with the splendor of the Rocky Mountains as a backdrop. We had a great time meeting their family and other friends. On Sunday we drove over to Beaver Creek to get a pre ride and run in on the Xterra course. More climbing climbing climbing. The legs didn't feel great today, which always makes you question if there will be there on race day. Things will lighten up with some race specific workouts to keep sharp in the next couple of weeks, so I'm not too worried about being ready. This week should be a quiet week at the office with lots of people taking advantage of the mid-week holiday and taking the rest of the week off. Hopefully I can get caught up a little be there and maybe get ahead of a few things so the week leading up to Beaver Creek is less stressful. As it looks now, that week could be a rough one.
