What's Next???

Well, back from what?? Not sure, recovering from the trip and months of travel. I unpacked my bags AND put the suitcases underneath the staircase (where they will stay for awhile!!). I managed to get sick AGAIN on the plane ride home, this time just a cold/flu thing, China has not been too kind to my immune system! So for now, it's get over the jet lag, recover from the last few months and the cold I picked up, then decide what my next move is! 2012 maybe, 70.3 (1/2 ironman distance) maybe, sit on the couch and veg-out...definitely!!

Here are my last posts of Beijing pics, enjoy! If you want to see the rest of my photos, you'll have to visit me!

Yao anyone? Poor guy sticks out like a sore thumb!
Not the best photo, as Paul would say, I really need to upgrade my camera! The fireworks at the start of the closing was crazy, they went on forever and scared the crap out of me! You could feel it through your body!! Some pyromaniac had a hay-day with these games!
Walking into the stadium with the sea of Oranje!
Hey! It's Becks! I just happened to be standing right where they did the 2012 stuff! Saw the entire US men's B-ball team too, Kobe Bryant, Lebron James, Chris didn't turn out though, sorry!
Need I say more....
Time for some R'n'R. I'll let you know if I make any rash move to Australia 'cause it is too cold here (told you, I've become a wimp!).
Thanks to EVERYONE that has sent me an e-mail (which I probably didn't respond to but read!) or posted on my blog, it has meant SOOO much to me!!

Love ya!

I had to change the channel during the 2012 part of the show.....really could it have been any cheesier!!! It may even be bad enough to warrant a boycott!

Welcome home. Can't wait to see the rest of the pictures!

Welcome home Lisa!!
Well, I think you have earned the right to veg for awhile, give your body a chance to get back to normal. I guess I'll have to put a trip to Calgary on my calendar so I can see all of your pictures, besides I need an IKEA fix soon.
Enjoy some relaxation, you deserve it.

Welcome home Lisa!!!

I got sick on my flight home too. Didn't get any problem from eating all the snacks and treats off of the streets in Hong Kong and Beijing but I got a cold and stomach ache on the AC flight back from Seoul. I blame it on the crappy AC food.

You should just load your pictures onto Facebook. There's tons of ITU pros on there already (Gemmell, Docherty, Sweetland, Tich, Norden, Brownlee, Sander, etc).

It was great seeing you race in BEijing. It's good to have you back!
