Ten people in the class, with the move from 6:30 p to 7 p all because Nomad needed space for a new Karate class. I went tonight because of Jose, but the Thursday night class at 5:45 p is much more doable.

That's my VanderKit. See the kitty? Looks like Orbit. How could I pass it up? Plus it's bright colored so I will be easy to spot on the course.
Getting a pedicure tonight with my friend Dara, for her birthday. Rest day. Feeling like I'm slowly starting to recover....

Up in lovely Grand Rapids, MI. Hauled my butt out of bed at 4:15am, on the road by a little before 5am, and made it to class with 15 minutes to spare (the hour time difference will be nice going back home).
I walked into the class and the instructor said, "You must be Laura!" ... Good guess, dude. Once again, I'm the only female in a sea of white male geeks. The class is rather good so far, though. Worth the trip. I almost feel badly about having to leave early tomorrow to make it home in time for Brene. Almost.
Hotel upgraded me to a suite without me even asking AND they have free freshly-baked cookies 24 hours a day! I think this might be my favoritist place ever.
Very excited -- the other day, Robin and I made the impulse decision to go support Anne and others at IMFL this year! Because I was peer-pressured into volunteering, I'll take a stint at wetsuit peeler-offer. But really, other than that, I just plan to relax and enjoy some non-Chicago November weather. Can't wait!

So I keep getting mailings for a new trash company - I noticed my neighbors switched to them and they are $52/year cheaper and I am all about saving on something cut and dry like trash and recycling service. So I called my old company to discontinue and when they asked the price and competitor, they said "oh we will match that price and even go $2 cheaper per bill just to keep you as a customer." So now I'm going from $80 every 3 months to $65 every 3 months - just by making a phone call.
How interesting. I understand a business isn't going to just lower prices for everyone across the board, but it irritates me that you have to call to get the actual best price on this kind of stuff. I wonder how many other people they've lost because they didn't want to hassle with that pricing game, when others in town are coming in at such lower rates. 
2-hour ride on the schedule tonight. 20mph sustained winds in the forecast

Rare afternoon run. Ran from Serrano to Deerhill to sessions to Lafayette Ridge and back down sessions. I seemed to start of more tired, but actually ran more of the hills.

super frustrating tech day. Can not get my to sync and just freaking work. Pisses me off. All that money, no flipping manual, no customer service after 5pm. WTH. Most people have jobs and ride the trainer AFTER or BEFORE 9-5. Kickr, you suck

Tri Shop bike fit test @ 10 AM.  120 minutes, hook me up to their computer, and hopefully figure me out!!
Results:  WOW!  Went for a short ride because I had to see!  It felt great.  No tight hams or funny back stuff.  Neck and shoulders were relaxed.
