4 days till nationals. Hit a snag last night. After 3.5hrs of riding I was standing on a hill and had a "SRAM it" shift were I meant to go up a gear but instead went down two. It caused my weight to shift forward quickly and jam my arm up my shoulder. It was quite painful. Enough for me to go to the doctor today to get checked out again. He said it looked fine and to continue on as if it never happened. So I'm pressing on hoping to feel a bit better in 4 days.

The last three days have consisted of trying to avoid the rain storms. Where I've been riding they are easy to spot but still hard to avoid. I've been hit by them daily. 

On the home front we took Madelyn to the big movies to see Monsters University. She was so excited about the movie, popcorn, drink, candy, etc. she was so nice and let me finish off her box of Recess Pieces after she only had a few. 

Leaving for Wisconsin tomorrow. Pretty excited about helping the others for the U23 road race and the time trials. Get to take in my other position on the team as director. Luckily I'll have plenty of help from Mart, Andrew and my wife.
