…knocking out the last hard bike ride before the race, on a very hilly course in strong afternoon winds, and knowing you are READY.
…freshly groomed clean dogs!
…a Sunday morning open water swim with a good friend in clear water and sunshine! [Thank you, Shadow Cliffs, for NOT being full of algae like Quarry Lakes – I could even see Nigel’s feet up ahead! And fish swimming around!]
…snuggles with Mr Dark and Handsome
…quiet dogs chomping on their bones in the yard – it’s exercise, teeth cleaning and nutrition all in one!
…finally getting to race week!!!
