The mess of bike shoes, running shoes, and flip flops at the front door of our shared condo. With downpours every day, there is nothing quite like the feeling of pulling on already sodden sneakers/cycling shoes first thing in the morning....
There is nothing quite like the smell either....Hahahahahaah!
Mike is always bugging me that I never take enough photos....actually I find it difficult to take ANY photos. I mean, what am I going to take a pic of? Me standing next to a tree with my bike? Some people take great pics like that -- me though, I feel like such a knob. Hahahahahaha!!!
However, I broke out the camera yesterday and am making the effort...
Here is my coach, Sara Gross working away all afternoon on our rest day yesterday. We swam in the morning (I got pulled out of the pool because my fatigue was THAT obvious -- LOL!!!), and then had the rest of the day off.
While Sara worked diligently away, I laid in bed reading and kept getting up to eat. Then eat more, then eat still more. I felt like a bag of ass all day yesterday -- shudder. But it wouldn't be a rest day without that great ole feeling eh? Hee-hee!!
Speaking of my and many of my blogger buddies' favourite expression, here is the inventor of "Bag of Ass": Our very own uber coach resting and dreaming up more workouts for all of us...Clint Lien (And taking in some Antiques Roadshow...LOL!!!)
We made dinner for 9 people last night....Rachel is an incredible athlete, chef, organizer, and woman!! In fact -- her link to her blog has some BEAUTIFUL pics she has taken -- and the one of her riding her bike was taken by me! Hahahahahahaha!!!
Actually her blog has an excellent write up of the goings on at the camp so far!!
Here is Rachel is action -- I did as I was told, chopping veggies, etc as she worked her magic in the kitchen last night. She is such a caring person, she had found out on facebook that our newest roomie would be celebrating a birthday the next day. So, we all pitched in (under Rachel's guidance -- and when she wasn't looking, Sara and I stole sun chips -- LOL!!!!) and enjoyed an AWESOME dinner!!
Andrew Johns and his wife Lisbeth Kristensen are staying immediately below us. When they got wind of our new guest's birthday they promptly decided to arrange for a special cake for her....
Here is a pic of the birthday girl....Miranda!
