So I graduate from Luther College in 2 days. The last has been full of finals and department dinners to help us celebrate. It is starting to sink in....I can't believe 4 years has come and gone so fast. But now moving onto another chapter of my life in Cedar Falls at UNI. Will be moving down to CF on Sunday or Monday and hope to get the personal training job at Snap Fitness shortly after.

Next weekend is also the first time I will line up as a Cat 1,2 for Memorial Day weekend races. I will only be competing in the Burlington Road Race and Snake Alley Criterium, as my sister graduates from high school on Sunday. I am starting to get quite nervous, as I don't know what to expect. I am starting in the first row for Snake Alley, but it is already mental challenging to know I have to work as hard as I can just to hold that position for the race. Don't have huge goals of getting a high place, but just don't want to get lapped or pulled if possible. I have had success in the past (2 years, 2 wins) but it is going to be completely different ball game this year.

exciting, and glad to see you have a good starting position...just hold your front position the first time up the snake and I bet things will all work out for a respectable overall placing.

You have owned this race for the last two years, so it obviously suits your strengths, so keep it positive in your head...

maybe won't be 'three years three wins', but who knows, just enjoy the day and congrats on graduating from college, that is really a great accomplishment.
