But no matter what, all along, it's been about documenting my journeys and the blog has taken me from age 27 to nearly 35. I don't think I've missed documenting a trip or race in some fashion (not always a race report) and I'm not about to start now.
So, even though Pucòn 70.3 is SOOOOO last month and our trip to Thailand was SOOOOOOO last year, I wanted to throw up a couple thoughts and memories. For me. (Pucòn coming in the next couple days, but today, THAILAND!)
So, back in November, we went to Thailand for Luke to race Challenge Phuket (Can you say bucket list race?). We flew San Diego to San Francisco to Hong Kong. We stayed overnight at the Hong Kong airport and flew to Phuket, Thailand the next morning. Not the easiest trip with a six month old, but there are worse things. We made it work. Including an airport-hotel workout with Wynne. We were those crazy people.
We finally arrived in Laguna Phuket (the resort area) and all I can say is that place is dreamy! Our little family is happy when we're in the hot and steamy tropics and Phuket did not disappoint. We stayed at The Banyon Tree resort thanks to the resort and the race organization and it was most definitely the most unreal and luxe place I have ever stayed. We had an amazing villa with our own private pool and were treated to the world's most unreal buffet every day (can you say MANGO STICKY RICE?). The grounds also have a 40 meter lap pool- perfect for training, and easy access to the bike and run courses for the race where I did my training.
