Nice Timing!

A friend of mine, one who doesn't read CyclingNews and most likely has no idea I am waiting to race the biggest race of my career thus far, emailed this picture today. He was cleaning out his inbox and came across an email/picture from Greg after I had my first Elite Track Nationals Podium... Bronze in the 500m.

Wow! That caused a pause and some reflection.

Bronze in the 500m on October 4, 2007.

3 years and 5 months and 19 days later I am about to race at the World Championships. Holy! It's been quite a ride and I expect the excitement to continue!

Thanks for the reality check email Geoff... if you even read my blog.

Last night was opening ceremonies. Basically, the build of excitement and an introduction of Nations.

3 year and 5 months and 19 days ago I had no idea who Eddy Merckx was...

That's it... racing starts tonight!
