It’s hard to believe that the racing season has already started, but after three back-to-back days of racing, it definitely feels like it has! Of course, it’s still mid-November and we still have another month until we’ll race back home, so these are definitely races and results to be taken pretty lightly. But with a deep, highly competitive international field of racers fired up for the season to begin, there’s definitely a contagious energy around these races. When I was racing today, Clare cheered me on by screaming “every second counts!” and it couldn’t have been more true–in these races, every second could easily be 5 places. Thats crazy! And it’s also definitely very motivating.
I won’t go into results in detail or anything, but I think the team had some pretty solid results and we’re where we need to be at this time of the year. And we’re also real easy to spot in our new suits, too!!
We’ve been taking our recovery at least as seriously as our racing in the last few days. I’d say the recovery might even be at the level of extreme– and it’s certainly helping to keep us entertained! Here are some pictures of “the two R’s.”
