Port Macquarie, the Aftermath!

by hillarybiscay

I am about to get to work on my race report, but now that I am finally back online, I just wanted to check in and thank everyone for so many nice cheers yesterday via twitter, email, Facebook , and all!

After I crossed here, I spent wayyyyy  too much time in drug testing. I needed food badly but there was a lot of waiting around, and ultimately I ended up in the fetal position on the floor of the drug testing room.

That was lovely. When it was all said and done, I got wheeled into a taxi back to my hotel and managed to drag myself downstairs to get some food into me about three hours after I had finished racing; that is three hours too long in my book! Ouch.

This pretty much sums up my night last night.

I wish I could bring these home to my mom—so beautiful!

Highlight of this morning: a long walk and a triple-shot flat white here. Yessss.

I am feeling okay about yesterday. I had a crack and it wasn’t enough for the win but given where I was just a few weeks ago, it was alright. Full dets soon in my race report! Thanks again for following along.
