Not Really but kinda Wordless Wednesdays: Bahamas Days

Ahh, one more day here. It’s gone by fast, too fast. But I think it’s because we’ve stayed busy. I know a lot of people think we are on vacation, but nope, that’s not the case. We just get to work in paradise for a week. Can’t complain. It's definitely a vacation from the norm though. I thought' I’d share a little bit of what goes on here and then follow it up with a lot of … [Read more...]

Okay, gotta make this quick. We are off for the second part of training today and there’s no service where we will be. Kinda love that. True disconnect! Anyway, we are here and it’s quite the adventure. I’ll let the VLOG speak for itself. On another note, I’ve still managed to make some good pre workout fuel with my rice maker. I call this my trail mix brown rice … [Read more...]

This was our last weekend in the Bahamas. Another round of long runs, bike rides, and swimming. But before we hopped into training mode, we got to enjoy some boating in “recovery day” mode. Yes Friday was recovery, from the week of training, then Saturday and Sunday were longer training hours. I hopped in a few swim here and there and tackled a slow slow slow 5k. It felt good … [Read more...]

Thanks for letting … [Read more...]

Ocean Potion

Not gonna lie. This has been one crazy ride. Past few week here have flown by! These crazy folks have anywhere between 2 to 4 workouts a day. I’m trying to do my best to keep the fridge stocked and fuel ready. It ain’t cheap either. Gluten free bread is about $12! Wowza! Let’s just say rice cakes have been my best friend instead. That, and corn tortillas. Our training camp … [Read more...]

Well, we’re back in Nassau. We took a quick trip over to Eleuthra (another island) so that the crew could get in some solid hours of training. And boy did they ever! Hours of riding and running all done here (below). And while the crew was away training, this Sherpa spent her time grocery shopping at the only grocery store on island piggly wiggly (literally a 300 sq. ft. … [Read more...]

Bahama Mama

I’ve nicked named myself the Bahama mama Sherpa. I only say that because I have the hair to prove it. It’s my “holy cow humidity FRO” hair. I blame it on the rain. It’s been raining everyday since we got here. I think we must have brought it with us. Sorry bahamas. But the good news is, with my new FRO, I have yet to wash my hair. So… I am saving on shampoo, … [Read more...]

Work and Play

So how’d we end up here? Work and play you might say, plus we got an invitation and a place to stay. Gosh we know generous people! We are always amazed at the kindness and thoughtfulness they show. Unreal! But we are here training and working (a little). A little bit of swim coaching … pool and ocean A little bit of nutrition work and healthy snack making….. Raw fuel … [Read more...]

Travel Talk Tuesday

A couple weeks ago “Standby” Cotter (aka the hubs) decided he changes some plans. Of course he asked me first, but to me honest, I really did not think He would follow through with. I know, bad wife. I was supportive though. A little over a week ago we received an email confirmation with our airline tickets. They had been purchased. Whoa.. We are really going. And … [Read more...]
