Miss the boy

Talked to Chris at 2:20 am my time as he got ready to ride over to the start line. He seemed excited and nervous. Typical pre-race Chris.

Laying here for the last 8 hours knowing that Chris has been racing and I can't see him has to be one of the weirdest feelings I've had in a while. If I were a more spontaneous person I'd pack Turbo into the car and drive up to Decorah for the finish. That's how much I wish I was at least closer. I know I wouldn't be able to see him or help him in any way (stupid self supported concept), but I don't like the feeling that I get from being so far away. Who thought I'd ever WISH I was in Iowa? This is a foreign concept... brain doesn't know how to compute...

Guitar Ted has done a great job posting updates on the race (although I wish I could have a personalized report about the people I care about -- that'd be sweeeeeeeet). Looks like they are having spectacular weather.

I've been thinking about him all day. The audio updates have been awesome. We may know who's in and who's out on the next update. I know Chris will hang in as long as he can. GO CHRIS!!!!
