6 Sept 10: My Favorite Bike Course . . .

by hillarybiscay

The past few days have been full of very happy, long-awaited reunions: with my Madison family–my super homestay Kari Myrland, my BFF Amanda (who is also racing next weekend), and my favorite bike course!! Lots of reasons for the smile above! This is my fifth consecutive year racing here in Madison and my fifth year making myself right at home with Kari, who so generously continues to play host to me–and now the GCM too. I feel so fortunate that I stumbled into such an awesome homestay four years ago, as it has turned into one of my most valued friendships.

On Saturday the GCM and I hit the ironman bike course and it did not disappoint. It was blowing a gale out there, but the sky was absolutely beautiful and it was tank top tanning weather, as far as I was concerned! I was so happy to be reunited with my beloved Madison-area hills that I immediately felt like a million bucks; Maiki pointed out that I was riding faster than I did in the race last weekend. Pathetic but probably a true statement.

I know this course like the back of my hand now and I have so many fantastic memories here that I lovelovelove it!!

Even hills like this . . . I can’t wait to get out there and really be able to HIT IT on Sunday!!
