NZ by the Numbers

While I’m back in VT trying to ignore the big time change number (+16 hours, or -8hrs + 1 day) and the repercussions of a long travel day-plus, here are some nicer numbers from a great training trip. If you follow along on my social media, you know that I’ve just been in New Zealand for 3 weeks, training on snow with my team, the Craftsbury Green Racing Project. More photos and thoughts to follow later — for now it’s all I can do to mine my training log and fuzzy brain for these numbers, and stick in a few photos before the next tidal wave of tiredness hits!
