A Perfect Day

When you are already IN paradise, it probably makes having a perfect day a little easier – but yesterday was surely the closest I have ever come! I got up early and headed into town because Rudy Project was giving away Wingspan helmets to athletes. I was able to snag a yellow/green one – not only does it match my Rev3 kit perfectly, it should help my parents as they are trying to spot me out on the course 🙂

Then it was time for a little pampering, and I just couldn’t resist getting my toenails painted in the same color as the helmet. So cute!!

After the pedicure I was walking home to the condo, and couldn’t resist stopping in for another acai bowl. This time I at least held myself to a small, but I could seriously get used to these on the regular.

I had a long afternoon ride ahead, so I put my feet up at the pool for a bit. Before long though I was heading out to the Mauna Lani with Hillary and Tati for a ride. Having these girls escort me up to Hawi for my first time was awesome. There was no better way to enjoy the gorgeous sunset than on a bike with these two! We had hoped this would give me a sense of the winds up there but no such luck – it was the most calm day ever. I know I can’t count on that for race day!

Capping off my big day was finally getting to try these vega shakes I’ve heard so much about from Hillary. Much to my surprise this is another healthy thing I can add to the ‘good’ list!

  1. Awesome looking helmet! I have a Wingspan – it’s white, but has blue and green stripes on it that match my Rev3 kit, too! But of course, I didn’t get mine in Hawaii!

    Kick ass while you’re there!
