On Sunday the 21st, we boarded a Princess cruise ship with a little group called Cruise to Run. IM AZ buddies Alex and Susan had done this cruise several times and talked me into signing up last year. Basically you go on a cruise with a bunch of crazy endurance athletes, do a little race on each island we stop at, have guest speakers (the amazing Sarah Reinertsen and Runners World's own Bart Yasso this year), drink a whole lot of alcohol and confound all the people who are just on the boat to eat their body weights in cream puffs and roast in the sun.
Let's get on this thing already!
We set sail after bedtime on Sunday night and woke up Monday morning pulling into the harbor on the island of St Thomas in the US Virgin Islands!
We got lots of open water swimming in while we were there too!
