On Saturday night, Triathlete Magazine hosted a party for the TIMEX and Zoot teams. I got to meet Samantha McGlone!
The next photo is of my table at the team dinner on Sunday evening. From left to right: Kyle Marcotte, Marcel Vifian, Ritchie Cunningham, Luis Alvarez, Adrianna from Timex, me, Mark from Trek, and THE Sergio. Kyle, Sergio, and I were picking Mark's brain all night and he was kind enough to humor us with some firsthand knowledge from the wind tunnel ;)
Next up, here is a shot of me on the run during the race (yes, this is out of order...):
Here Sergio and I are taking a break during a nice relaxing ride down the coast on Monday:

All in all the trip was a lot of fun. It was a nice break from the grind and great to catch up with old teammates and meet some new ones. Hopefully I'll get to see plenty of them out at the races this year! Also, if you happen to see the trademark orange at a race, make sure to introduce yourself and mention me... everyone is super friendly.
