Five weeks of awesome begins tomorrow!
First there is triathlon camp in Tucson. Four days straight of swimbikerun. And apparently we are time-trialing up Mt. Lemmon. Let the games begin!
Last year's camp
A few days later, I get to go back to Burkina - this time we'll actually make it out to some of the villages which is always the neatest part.
On my way home, an extended layover in Paris to meet up with one of my favorite people. Chelsea and I used to work together and there was just a wall separating her office from mine (we had a chair in my office that was Chelsea's designated chair. We were *this close* to just moving her computer in as well for a permanent setup). Now she lives in Germany, so this stopover was a perfect excuse to bounce around the City of Lights for a few days.
Next up will be Nashville! I can't wait to spend some time with my Erin, her husband, and the cutest goddaughter on the face of the earth. I'm also going to see if I can steal one of their bikes so I can go for a spin around the country roads of Tennessee and Nashville - I'm convinced they have some of the most pleasant places to bike.
And my last trip - home to New Hampshire to see my family and attend the wedding of my good friend Heather. We met in 5th grade and even though it has been years since we lived in the same state (since high school!), we always pick up right where we left off. I haven't seen my family since Thanksgiving, so I'm really looking forward to some family dinners, eating guacamole with my mom, and catching up.
Let's just hope I can pack for the rest of those trips faster than I managed to pack for tri camp - holy-slow-as-molasses Batman!
