Registered and ready to go…

Got the bus to Club Santa and registered.  One of the most simple and pleasant registrations to date.  And definately one of the best gear bags ever handed out.  It’s only a matter of time before one of my kids gets their hands on this, so the first one of them to comment on this blog post gets it.

Got chatting with many an athelete, so now in the mood to go out there and do it…  Seems the carbo party is non-mandatory and because Club Santa is a 1/2hr drive away, many people do not go.

Club Santa is an ideal place to go train in preparation for Kona, it’s just sports mad, got a full 400m running track too.  Below is a picture taken of the swimming pools.  Must say I’m glad I’m staying on the other side of the island.  Time to relax and wait for Saturday… maybe a quick dip in the ocean before dinner tonite.
