Back To The Midwest

It's funny, people out here in Utah think they live in the Midwest and that where I'm originally from (Elkhart, IN) is "back east". Little do they know! So I'm packing tonight to head back to the true Midwest for an action-packed week of family/friends time with a little bit of racing thrown in for spice. I've been looking forward to this trip all summer long and now it's finally here! Three top priorities for the week: meeting my new week-old nephew Brayden; picking my niece Maddie up from kindergarten on Thursday (she will get a kick out of that!); and venturing over to Sandusky, OH for a little iron-distance triathlon hosted by REV3 on Sunday. Woohoo! I'm currently sitting in third place in the overall REV3 Pro Series and I have a shot at moving up after this race. Can't wait to get out there and celebrate all the hard work I've been putting in! And I'll have a nice big cheering section of family and friends to help me along the way...that is always a great boost. I'm so lucky!

We can't wait to see you! Have fun surprising Maddie; she will be thrilled to see Aunt Malaika in the pick up line. Safe travels!

I'm bringing the LOUD cheerer! I'm not sure I can stand next to him he's so loud! But, I guess I'll be cheering then, too, so maybe I won't notice so much. :) REALLY looking forward to it!

Sorry our schedules didn't cross for this one, but I'll be following along online.

Amazing race! Had a blast cheering for you; my students want to know what happened to my voice. ;-)

Enjoy the awards' ceremony today and meeting Brayden too!
