I found out that due to a rather lucky break, I qualified for the USAT Age Group Nationals next year!
|Um, yeah, I didn't believe it at first, either|
How excited was I? So excited that I seriously thought it was a scam and asked Coach Emily if it was for realz.
Turns out I qualified at Vermilion...and I had no idea that the race was even a qualifier! Shows you how clueless I am. Even though my age group was REALLY small, I won it, so I lucked out and got myself a spot! So, I understand that part of this is selling their race and all, but for someone like me who doesn't get out much and races mostly small and local, I think it sounds pretty fun. Now, operation "Don't Finish DFL" will be in full effect. Because, as long as I can get in on registration day, I am totally going! Driveable? How can I pass this up?
I never qualify for anything except free shipping!
What totally sealed the deal was that my teammate, the super awesome Rural Girl, will also be heading up, so it's going to be EPIC. Unfortunately, it's the same weekend as the Dells, so I won't be able to see my other Wisconsin Homies. But Michelle and I will still REPRESENT, yo.
I know it's a little silly, but I'm kind of ridiculously excited about this. Yippee!
Provided the world doesn't end next week, 2013 is gonna be pretty awesome.
