Been a long time since I last updated!  Richard and I took our annual trip down south in search of warmer temps and awesome trails & roads to run & ride on.  We headed to St George, Utah as our first stop.  Although a little on the cool side (but much nicer than Calgary weather!), we got in some great spins on our mountain bikes and our road bikes…blue skies the whole time!  Great trails, great geology, and tons of fun….

Shorts & t-shirt riding in December!

An newly discovered (for us!) slickrock area near St George!  It was fantastic!

Then, as the winds in Utah picked up we took a side trip to San Diego (via Las Vegas) to visit friends, check out the new ITU course venue, and enjoy the coast.  We were welcomed with open arms by Chris & Cathy….we felt so at home, we almost didn’t leave….

Now, we’re back in Calgary for some winter weather, family holiday festivities and last minute preparations for my trip to the Southern Hemisphere!

Happy Holidays everyone!
