|I found my friend Claire working at the British Museum in London!|
I have finally returned back to Canada - Strong and Free! I am staying in Ottawa with my mom for the next couple weeks because a) I know she will baby me and bake for me and b) I was supposed to be racing the National Championships in Lac Megantic. I was so excited for Nationals and was even hoping to leave some of my criterium skills on the Quebec pot holes and come away with some shiny metal. But after I realized I had hit my head pretty hard, those dreams have been postponed until BC Superweek. I am also missing the amazing Preston Street Criterium which runs along a road I used to live on. I had won this race a couple years ago and was really hoping to do it again - but alas...shit happens!

The good news is today I rode my bike for the first time in 2 weeks today! And seeing as my head seems to be handling the shock of riding the rollers really well, I will try for a ride up to the Gatineaus tomorrow :) I am so desperate to work on my tan lines!
As for now I am just trying to get cycling again and am CROSSING MY FINGERS that I will be 100% for the couple weeks of racing in BC in July. I am also planning on overdosing on Tim Hortons and the Bulk Barn while in in ONTerrible - two staples in my life that had been stripped from me while living abroad :)
More racing posts are expected for the near future! I promise!!
