G'Day, How ya going?

After a very long 2 days (I flew through Korea--it makes my trip home easier and was much cheaper) I finally arrived in Noosa! I flew Calgary-Seattle on Jan 12th, with a 6.5hour stop over--not much is open in downtown Seattle at 8am on a saturday! Then a 11.75 hour flight to Soeul, 2 hours in the airport, and right back on another 10hour flight to doesn't stop there...2 more hours on a shuttle bus and I was finally in Noosa at 10am on Jan 14th!

I am staying with Brad's (a friend of my Brother-in-law, who I met last year) parents in Noosa. They are super nice and have a great place, so it made all the travel worth it!! The only problem is they live on top of a hill, makes for nice views but I have to bike back up it AFTER every workout!! Good for the legs anyway!!

I was going to post pictures with this post, but after 15 of trying to load them, I gave up! I'll work on it!

Now I'm finally back into the swing of training (the 5:30am swim are rough) and getting used to the heat....I better put on some more sunscreen!
Talk to ya later,

Refreshed and Ready to Go!

Well, after almost a month "off", I started up full training again last week. The break was good but went by quick with the Holiday festivities!

Now I am off to Australia on Jan 12th for some intense training until the end of March when the World Cup races start up again. The first one in Mooloolaba, Australia March 30th followed by New Plymouth April 6th, New Zealand and then I fly home through Korea for a race there on April 26th.

I might be out of communication for a bit until I get settled in Noosa, but I promise to keep up with the updates while I'm there!

Take care, keep in touch!

I'm sick of winter--I'm off to find summer!
