Yiiiiihaw, it's TransRockies time!!
I am very excited to tell y'all that I will be returning to Colorado to run in the TransRockies Run 2008 Edition!! Yaaaaay! Last year, I had a ridiculous amount of fun there with my friend Steven. I couldn't have asked for a better partner and we had a great time at the inaugral TransRockies Run. See my TransRockies 2007 Race Report here.
This year, I am partnering with a girly-girl, (or is she? I don't know!) because she is my on-line/blogging friend - Meghan of Yellowstone. Normally, something like this would make me a little nervous and uncomfortable, but with Meghan I have always had a good feeling. I am very excited for this adventure with a new friend!
When I was Adventure Racing a few years back, I used to talk about how important it was to know and choose your race partner, but last year, Steve blew that theory out of the water. I didn't know him either and he turned out to StevenMountainManSuperstarPartner!! So with that in mind, I asked Meghan if she would like to join me for a little adventure at the TransRockies Run and she came back with a very excited, "Hell, yes!!"
So I am stoked.
The cherry on the cake, is that my husband will also be joining in the fun. Keith has found himself some cushy volunteer job and will be out on the course every day cheering us on. It's a good thing it's a cushy volunteer job, because he will be working his ass off at the TransRockies Bike Race, the week before.
We like the good people of the TransRockies organisation. They are just great people and they know how to put on a wicked fun, well organised event! I personally, can't wait!
