I am talking about Shelly and Nicola. They arrived! Life is so much better! For those who don't know, Nicola is the owner and manager of PROMAN Professional Cycling Team who I am so glad to be racing for. Shelley is the hot thing that kicks some speed in the endurance races. www.proman-paradigm.blogspot.com and www.shelleyolds.com
Yesterday I picked these two up from the airport and we headed down to our host house in Sandringham. We are a block from the beach and in the coolest area. We all went out for a spin, made some dinner, watched some footie, and went to bed.
What is footie? You silly Americans... don't you know? It is the coolest sport ever! A bit of rugby, some soccer, some football, some hockey body checks, some basketball jump balls... and it goes on. These guys are athletes. Apparently we are staying in the parents of the "Peyton Manning" of footie (or Aussie Rules Football.) I thought I was sleeping in a room full of kids' trophies, medals, mounted jerserys, etc. Um, no. Those are League MVP trophies and such. This Judd guy is an athlete!
Today we spent some time at the track. Tomorrow is the first day of competition. It is funny how different my workout is compared to Shelly (sprinter vs. endurance.) She laughs at my short efforts... I laugh at her long ones. Either way, we are both ready for tomorrow!
