Hail to the Victors

There are few, VERY FEW, things that will keep me from watching my beloved Wolverines storm through the tunnel and onto the field at the Big House! Previous coaches have had to plan my schedule around Michigan football games. For the next 5 weeks training takes priority over college football. Kona must be very special! While the Maize and Blue get the 2009 season under way tomorrow I'll be climbing the biggest mountains in San Diego County- one after another, and another, and another. Tomorrow we'll leave before sun rise for an epic 125(ish) mile ride. A group of us did this ride last year, and we're at it again. One thing this ride does is make any ironman bike course seem easy. To add to the mix we're experiencing a heat wave in San Diego. Perfect! I love it!

Knowing that I'd be riding through the game tomorrow (don't worry, it will be recorded and viewed upon my arrival home) my parents and I enjoyed an awesome Caroline Style Ann Arbor tour while I was home.

The stadium is under renovation and looks awesome. Oh the memories this stadium holds!

No visit to Ann Arbor is complete without frequenting my favorite eateries! First up: Pizza Bob's for my second favorite food group...The Chipatti food group of course (chipatti = fluffy wheat bread filled with salad. The secret is in the dressing!!!). Mmmmmmmmmm

My favorite food group of all? Frozen yogurt of course! No one knows how to do hard served fro yo like Ann Arbor's Stucchi's Creamery!

I really need to open a Chipatti, frozen yogurt shop in San Diego!

I'll have to watch the game a few hours after the fact, but epic Kona training makes it well worth it. Good Night, and GO BLUE!

I am SO envious of you going back! I'll be with you in spirit, and hopefully next year I will make it back too! Sounds like training is going well, best of luck preparing for the final countdown! I'll get my turn later, just not in the lava fields :-)
