Trans Portugal Arrival

tp-pre-race-015-small1 Preparing for a race involves carefully controlling your nutrition and hydration.  I have found that Super Bock beer has everything the elite athlete needs...

Chasing Rich and Dan

Arrived yesterday in Lisbon.  Began 'hydrating' right away.  Today we decided to prepare 'mentally' for the race by renting these beauties and racing through the narrow twisting cobblestone streets of Lisbon.  Bob and I had a little trouble keeping up as our buggy's engine wasn't as finely tuned as Rich and Dan's.  Continued with some more afternoon hydrating.  Currently suffering from jet lag.  I woke up after 4 hours of sleep (3am locally).  The only positive was that I listened to the Canucks game online.  Tomorrow we get to take a 7 hour bus ride to the northern Portuguese town of Braganca (yeah...).  Race starts Saturday...
