Every triathlete in training needs a day of rest. In fact, it's mandatory. However, consuming several alcoholic beverages probably is not mandatory, but I am a firm believer it helps to achieve full relaxation mode. Thankfully, my co-workers and team members support this ideology.
Curious as to why rest is so important during training? Check out this article: http://sportsmedicine.about.com/od/sampleworkouts/a/RestandRecovery.htm
Our boss, Jill (aka- coolest, most awesomest boss in the world!), came up with a fabulous idea to shut down the office and take us all to the Royals game! It was a great break for me both mentality and physically with the training and with the beautiful spring weather I think we were all dying to get out of the office. We made some new friends while tailgating, played washers & bagg-o, checked out the new stadium, laughed endlessly thanks to all the wacky KC Royal fans...oh, and somewhere in there caught parts of the game!

Awesome seats- thanks Jill!!
NOTE TO SELF: Next tailgate at the Royals, bring only girls!! Apparently an all girls tailgate is quite the phenomenon and as a single lady lookin for love, they flocked to us like bees to honey!
