Team Rev3 Tri ...

So, I've been keeping a secret.

From pretty much everyone.

Back in October, I applied to be a member of Team Rev3 Tri.

I was so positively convinced that there was no way that I would get selected that I didn't tell a single soul. Well, except for one person - the person who recommended that I apply. I didn't even mention it to J until I got made it to the phone interview. (Yeah, I know, real mature of me, right?)

Then, just before Christmas, I got the best email EVER, letting me know that I had been selected to represent Rev3 Triathlon for 2013. It was epic and I was over-the-moon excited. And I wasn't allowed to tell the world.

Do you know how hard it is to not share your big news when you spend all day every day talking about yourself? Yeah, it was torturous. I'm not good with secrets. I'm more of an open book kind of person.

Anyway, so I made the team, *insert screaming here*, which meant that I got to travel to Denver/Boulder for the team summit this past weekend.

After view ...
After view ...
Holy freaking cannoli! Talk about amazing. The location. The people. The sponsors. Everything.

The faces we show to the public ...
What we are really like ...
It was all top notch and I feel beyond blessed to be a part of the Rev3 family and to represent them (and all of our sponsors) this year, and hopefully for all of eternity, if they'll have me.
