Good News!

The new Camelbak totally works. I used it for Carnevale in Muggia on Saturday night. We rode the bus there and back (I promise we weren't the only ones dressed up. There were even other pigs on the bus!) and to take away the plasticky taste, I threw in some (a splash, really, of) homemade wine diluted with water, which the Triestini surprisingly call a SPRITZ. I used the Camelbak the next day (sans vin) for my run in Val Rosandra with Sweetie. It did the trick. I also went gel shopping on Saturday, so I'll be trying some of those out this weekend for the 20-miler .

What do you think of the costumes? Cool, huh? They're nice and warm.


  1. Your cheeks are quite rosy...are you SURE it was just a spritz?

  2. I am at a loss for words, HONEST!

  3. what's missing is the context. If I told you that we went to carnevale with a couple of leopards would it help put things into perspective? I see I'm going to have to put up more pictures...

  4. Didn't the leopards try to eat you?
