I've been hoping on pulling off a Tucson training camp for B and I for a few years now. We were kind of hoping for one in May, but logistically, it wasn't going to work out.
(I maybe might be going to a paid camp in August, but that's not 100% sure yet.)
Since we wanted a vacation anyway, and Tucson needed to be a thing for both of us, we went down last week and obviously brought bikes and things to get a bit of training in.
It wasn't heavy - a bike, a trail run, and a hike - but it was good. The trail running also taught us that we have some work ahead of us before Pikes Peak Ascent.

Bike selfie. (SMASH kit, obvi.)
On our trail run on the Phoneline Trail in Sabino Canyon.
"This shit is hard." Rocking all the Skirt (plus SMASH socks).
Next to a saguaro in Saguaro National Park. SMASH tee and Lioness skirt.
We didn't bother with swim stuff because Brandon has been doing PT for a shoulder issue and wasn't cleared to swim at the time of the trip and I didn't much care about trying to figure it out logistically (things you don't bother with when you're not on a swim streak ...).
We didn't get in quite as much training as we'd hoped, but all in all, it was a nice little trip with some wonderful time in the sunshine. As well as a stop at SMASH HQ to buy stuff and talk with Hillary, because of course.
