another day in paradise
It is hard to describe just what the three days of the Ultraman event experience is all about because to me it was so much more than just a race. It is just starting to hit me after seeing the pictures last night at the awards dinner and hearing the stories from everyone… Did we really just do THAT? I was honored to watch, participate and take it all in. I think it was Mike who summed it up quite well last night when he said it was really the experience of a 5 day event, starting with the family meeting for Thanksgiving breakfast the day before the race until the dinner last night.
I plan on posting a day by day race report when I can start to wrap my head around it but the experience is not over so I have just been taking notes and keeping it going to soak in as much as I can. We were suppose to fly out today because I need to fly to San Francisco for work this week but instead of flying home first,we decided just fly directly to San Francisco before going home so we could take just one more day in paradise before getting back to the grind. Monique and I have spent a lot of time traveling and knocked out quite a few adventures in the last few years but the experience of Ultraman is some strong, strong medicine. We need another day just to swallow it and we are in the perfect place to absorb it.
This morning we joined back up with the crew for some paddle time and splashing in the water…paradise!
