Tuesday- 5.6 mile run(1:01)<--what happens when you don't hydrate well before a run and it's 90 degrees outside. Hydrate people!, 1:40 plank
Wednesday- 18.6 mile ride (1:11) 2:00 plank
Enough about working out let's get down to the fun stuff.
This is probably gonna have to come in two posts, shocker I know.
I really lack any self control or editing skills.
I can't help it, I want to tell you everything.
Friday flight time? 6:40 am. That would be majorly early if we weren't runners who regularly get up before the rooster crows. Look at us all bright eyed and bushy tailed. Being an early riser has lots of benefits.
Being a triathlete has some benefits to, I can fuel anywhere and at any speed. 500 mph at 30, 000 ft? No problem.
Subway for lunch down by the creek--check!
Over the river and through the mountain we go!
Scenic stop? Ain't nobody got time for that! We do scenic pull throughs.
We were trying to make it to the pacer meeting in Leadville.
Finally. Leadville! Aaaaaand we missed the meeting.
It was at 12 not 12:30. Face, palm.
At least one of our pacers made it and got all the info we needed.
Number 9, made me laugh.
Tip #4354- Always have one really responsible person on your crew who can tell time. Thanks Colleen!
And read coordinates on a map<--more on that later.
After our responsible crew member filled us in on the important details, we all picked the sections of the race we would be pacing and hashed out the next days details. All that running and racing talk made us hungry so we headed into Breckenridge for dinner.
After we hit up a running store of course. That's what runners do ya know.
I'm so planting a shoe tree next spring ;-) The flowers were growing out of the shoes. Not the best pic I know.
Steph and JoDee found these sweet water bottles.
Reflective much? Seriously how cool is that? Ya know we had to get them.
And if you visit America's highest running store you better get the shirt, right?
I loved this store they were super cool and friendly and I'm not just saying that because they remembered us from Moab.
They remembered flat JoDee! Can you believe that? They were in Moab for the women's half too and they remembered us with flat JoDee at the race. You know you have made an impression when people in Colorado know you from a race in Moab and you live in Arizona.
What can I say, we leave a lasting impression everywhere we go ;-)
Sweets? Well, that's what this runner does! There were quite a few bakery's in Breckenridge, I managed to hit up 2 of them.
Not bad for a quick three day trip.
This was a little French Bakery called La Francaise. This meringue tasted like cotton candy!
We got a few other things to share too. They were good but nothing to special.
My favorite was the peach croissant tart thingy. Forgot what they called it. Bad blogger, I know.
After we filled out bellies with the necessary carbs. We headed back to the cabin to turn in early.
The drive from Breck to Leadville is horribly ugly.
So we were left to our own entertainment.
We probably shouldn't be left alone very often. :-)
|Danelle Dangerous Shirts in the Houuuse!|
Danelle had no idea we were making shirts (she got the nick name Danelle Dangerous in Moab) so we had to model them for her. That's a good looking crew if I do say so myself.
We said our good nights, set out our stuff in the morning and turned in early.
The morning was gonna come early!! Reeeeal early!
Stay tuned, it's gonna get awesome!
