Today was smashing in more ways than one. A leisurely wake up call straight into a seven hour long smashfest. Close to 6 hours and over 105 miles riding with team Tucson (Hillary & Maiki- better known as the German Cycling Machine)...We rode out to Kitt Peak. It's about 40 miles to get to the base and then 12 miles up up up...We let the boys ride ahead and used the 12 miles as a gossip/therapy session which made it fly by. Much more entertaining then Lemmon!

Maiki, Hillary, and my finger...near the top. 

Seriosuly? my pose is ridiculous. I apologize.

We got home in the heat of the day (98 degrees!) and set out for a 70 minute t-run. This was not one of my finer or more beautiful moments of running as I slogged along quite slowly. But, for some reason, through the hills, and heat, and dehydration- I was still loving it! 

Then, just when I most needed it, the Ice man delivered! Thanks, CAT! Ice baths & naps for all!

We topped off the night with a perfect dinner al fresco at Maynard's Kitchen. 

Keepin' it euro style...Espresso for dessert.

Ok, it's past 10 pm AGAIN. 3 nights in a row is for sure a record for me. Tomorrow is one last ride then home again. We "forgot" to swim this trip, but the riding & running make up for it, right?
