When we wrote this morning, we didn’t expect to have a chance to blog again. Twelve hours later, we’ve learned that our host lodge has internet, and we’ve also discovered that Tico Time is in full effect until the race starts. This means lots of time to rest, hydrate, sweat, hydrate some more and post pictures. The lodge is gorgeous, the little we know of the race is impressive, and we’re all eager for Monday morning to come. Maps, meetings and tree planting tomorrow. Hopefully a few more pictures as well!
Bins, bags and GOALS Gals Gone Wild on the curb of our hostel at 9 AM, as directed by the RD. In Tico Time, as we learned, this really meant 1030. Everyone seems very excited that we have two women on the team!
Bibs and introductions at “Toyota City” in San Jose. Four hours of eating, meeting the other teams and relaxing. Lots of relaxing!
Talking to the media. Bruce speaking to ESPN. Look for him on Sportscenter…Latin America version…The local coverage seems fantastic as was evidenced by the small army of photographers, videographers, reporters and volunteers roaming through Toyota City during the afternoon.
