Congrats!

As I'm going through cycling withdrawl here in College Park, MD I am constantly checking twitter feeds, facebook statuses and cyclingnews.com updates for news on all of the exciting cycling events currently taking place around the world.  First and foremost, a big congratulations goes out to Matt Baranoski for his bonze medal at the Junior World Championships in the Kilo!  There's also the international sprint grand prix going on in CO Springs along with the US Pro National Crit Championships that concluded yesterday.  Good luck to all riders competing in these events.

As for me, I have my final 2-a-day pre-season field hockey practice tomorrow!  We leave for our season opener in Philly on Thursday.  I'm exciting to be back in PA for a few days. 
I'm sorry to be so short but I'm off to sleep before what promises to be a long day of practices tomorrow.  I"ll be sure to check in soon.

Gettin' Rolling

I've taken the plunge and finally decided to make a blog.  I'm new to the concept, but I hope to keep friends, family, and sponsors up to date on my latest adventures. Please bare with me as I figure out this whole blogging deal.

Last Wednesday I officially concluded my 2012 cycling season.  Over the past few months I have competed in 46 track races and 25 road races across the country.  I took a three month hiatus to the Midwest to race Fixed Gear Classic (Blaine, MN) and Tour of America's Dairyland (WI).  Thoroughly exhaused I returned home to PA with a podium finish at the Sheboygan Crit and a 10th place omnium result.  I returned to the Valley Preferred Cycling Center in time to race the third World Series of Bicycling Friday night racing... which I subsequently won.  I was pleased to be back on my home track and I couldn't have asked for a better homecoming result!  I continued to race in PA, garnering my greatest amount of wins in a single season.  I won't bore you listing every race result of the summer but I had a great time training and racing the last few months. 

As of last week I said my goodbyes to my favorite place in the country- T-Town and moved down to my College Park, MD appartment to start my junior year field hockey preseason at the University of Maryland.  Luckily, we will be returning to PA on Friday for a scrimmage against Penn State.  I always love playing in PA- close to home, family and friends. :) 

Next thing on the calendar... 2 hockey training sessions tomorrow... first one starting in 8 hours.  Off to sleep so I can wake up ready to train!
