2013 Tucson Training Trip - Day 1

After a 3 hour, de-icing delay on the ramp at Minneapolis/ Saint Paul International Airport, I arrived in sunny Tucson, AZ Sunday evening.  I arranged the training trip in conjunction with a Sram/Zipp product release also in Tucson.  Greg Kopecky (friend, athlete, journalist) was also in town for the event, so I had a good training partner.  The plan was be at the Sram release for the beginning of the week and then shift our base to my brother's by the U of A.

Monday was almost a total loss - cloudy 40 deg changed to rain, then freezing rain, and then snow.  The same weather I left in Minnesota.

Thanks to Lauren Goss we did get two swims in on Monday.  She had a key to the Star Pass outdoor pool.  We ran to the pool, swam, and ran back at 7 AM.  After the Sram product release for the media, we walked to the pool and swam again.  Kevin O'Connor also made the 2nd swim too shortly after he arrive in Tucson.
