Today we woke up (and last night we slept through) pouring rain...the temperature was in the 40s and the wind was blowing like crazy...thank goodness we were not planning to be bike racers today! The team was scheduled for a photo shoot super-model style and so we all promptly began getting ready after a steady fill of java. It was fun, actually, and a great opportunity for us all to get to know each other. One by one, each of us were "on" and our photographers were awesome to help us put each to come out of our shells. This is Kat Carroll getting ready to strut her stuff. Catherine Powers prepped for her Superstar shot. Carmen McNellis and I bonded a bit. Carmen Deluisio, business as usual.
It took hours, though, to get all the shots but I think in the long run it will all be worth it. Although not as tough as bike racing, super modeling was exhausting so as soon as we were done, everyone retreated to the garage and hopped on to trainers for a workout. Here's Kat preparing for an upcoming race in Australia...she was set up across from me on the trainer.
