I was going through more photos today, now that race season is over and I am home a little more, and I found this one from Vermont at the National Championships.
As you can see, when we are left to our own defenses anything can happen. In the spirit of being good athletes, we are HUGE fans of the "ice bath" (yes, it is as miserable as it sounds, but it is SO good for recovery) and while traveling we sometimes have to get creative. The condo we stayed at up there had a really scenic ICE COLD mountain stream running behind it. With winter clothing and bathing suits on we headed out there every afternoon for our "recovery time". Yes, we got some mighty strange looks and eventually decided that we did in fact look a bit silly and should document it on film.
