It has been a rainy, rainy, snowy day, so we skipped Pikes Peak & headed to the US Olympic Training Center. My friend Shawn (one of the boys tri coaches) gave us the ultimate hook up...a tour with Mark Fretta! He is one of the top triathletes in the world. He was so kind. He answered questions, laughed at the boys stories & found a kindred Sunday morning coffee cake spirit in Chas. Elliott was inspired & Chas came back to the hotel & wanted to run on the treadmill.
We talked about Mark going to law school & being so dedicated to his training. We wished him good luck on Saturday & offered traveling mercies.
Make sure you tune into triathlon.org (i think) Saturday, 2pm pacific, when he races in the Olympic trials. The US will take 2 men & 3 women to London in triathlon. We hope Mark is one.
We headed out for pizza & then back for pool round 2. The boys are fast asleep & I'm waiting on laundry to finish & then headed in that direction too. Sweet dreams from a rainy COS.
