Scottsdale! Day 2 in Pictures...

This morning we drove out to Bartlett Lake to practice open water swimming skills. It was another beautiful Arizona day.

Keith is a freak of nature.

The water was cold for sure (57 maybe?) but the air wasn't too cold and the sun was warm and the athletes were all troopers! We practiced lots of great stuff this morning (or was that 4 days ago??) like how to get around a buoy most efficiently... how to dolphin dive... how to get out of the water faster... how to defend your space in a race... how to draft... etc.
Then we started riding. It was hilly today. I haven't downloaded my data yet but Tracy did and said it was 6000 ft of climbing. Pretty solid.
I had a bit of a moment (ok several moments) today while riding behind these guys/gals while we were all matchy matchy wearing our new kits! I couldn't help myself snapping away with my camera b/c it was such an awesome day and I was just just so freakin' proud of everyone.

Theresa and Tracy...
Krista is so much stronger than she thinks she is...
I think prior to this ride Texas Kate was fairly freaked out about all the climbing but she crushed it and clearly felt pretty good about that. :)
Shevaun and Shane...
I was having a moment watching this...
Check out these awesome empty roads! I'm trying to convince Scott that we should move here. :)
So all in all another fantastic day in the books! I can't believe today was even better than yesterday but there you go. :)
