Four Days to Race Date

After arriving in St. George mid afternoon on Monday we checked in to our place at the Green Valley Resort. Everyone was happy to leave the snow behind us finally and see this type of vegetation.



For the record, Melanie rocked this booking. Place is a very spacious three bedroom that has a massive living room area with a hide-a-bed and kitchen, dinning, sitting area to top it off.

From our second floor suite we have a decent view of the central courtyard area.



Didn't do a whole lot after arriving except meeting up with Bernie and a drive over the run course. I will do a run course preview later this week. Got to bed a bit earlier than the last few nights and then up at about 6:45 am and met up again with Bernie for breakfast and then went for a swim at Sand Hollow. I will do a separate blog post with my swim course preview. Nice easy 1km swim and then a 25km ride during the afternoon at a easy pace with a few pick-ups on some hills. Spending the rest of the afternoon relaxing.
