I flew into Atlanta on Thursday, which also happens to be where my best friend in the whole world, Ellen, lives. This year we are celebrating our 20th year of being friends. TWENTY YEARS!!! We had decided at the beginning of the summer that this was going to be a girl's weekend in Anderson, where her aunt happens to live. Even though I wasn't able to race because of my bike crash, I decided to go down anyway so I could spend time with her and see all of my teammates in Anderson.
One of our favorite things to do together, besides talk of course, is eat great food. And, as always, we made the most of the great restaurants in Atlanta and Anderson, SC. Since I wasn't racing I was able to take full advantage of any culinary (and beverage) delights that came my way!! After a lovely dinner on Thursday night and then a relaxing morning at Ellen's home on Friday, we headed to Anderson with a pit stop at the outlets in Commerce. (Shopping is another thing Ellen and I excel at!)
We rolled into town rather late and ate dinner at a wonderful little place called Summajoe's. If you are ever close to Anderson, I highly recommend it! We liked it so much, we convinced everyone to have our Trakkers Team dinner there on Saturday night!!
Saturday we spent the day hanging out at the Rev3 Expo and practice swim. The team made sure all the swimmers were lubed up with TriSlide at the practice swim and before the race on Sunday.
