You are going? Or is the green Y a lie?
I am going! Nothing to do with turning 30 next month and wanting to feel young again, I swear! ;)
Just going to hang with the 'rents (and according to them, act as team coach/manager for the entire NZ contingent...). And hang with you! You have a green Y too!!
I do! We're all going! Lukas isn't quite old enough, either, so he'll be doing basically what you're doing but for the US contingent.
Haha, I bet the he'll have the US team pros at punching with SI by the end of the week! ;)
Starting to wonder how everyone will cope with the heat, not a problem we would have expected to have in Denmark.
We'll be on an island...so beaches and icecream!
For the support team anyway. No icecream for the competitors til after the last race, Lukas and I will eat enough for the rest of you though ;)
Lukas is good at eating ice cream. He really excels at ice cream sandwiches but sometimes he wants a cone with “brown ice cream” instead. Just FYI for anyone wanting to get on his good side.
Isn’t everyone staying on an island?
I started my ice cream eating when I arrived in Helsinki on Monday, I figured that’s what you did with all the ice cream stalls around! (I guess I am ‘supporting’ my parents at WMOC as well as running)
I'm keen to witness an ice cream eating contest between Lukas and Blair :)
Hmmm. The bulletin doesn't specifically mention icecream in the Arena Catering section... unless it falls under "cold Danish inspired dishes"?
As for drinks: "the drinks selection will be beer and lemonade" :D
which would make shandy a third option. Choice!
Ice cream challenge accepted (although perhaps not until after the final).
I'm sure Lukas will be training hard during the week in preparation. I should probably see if he understands the concept and is actually interested.
Just to clarify: it's based on rate, rather than quantity, of consumption.
(I will be practising my stopwatch timing when I should be practising orienteering.)
Blair: You're not driving down via Halden on Friday are you?? ;)
No - getting the bus to Gothenburg tomorrow night and then picking up a car in Gothenburg Thursday.
Ah well, was worth a shot! See you on Saturday then! :)
Louise has suggested that there be a second scoring category for the ice cream eating competition: amount of ice cream on face.
Don't think I'll be in contention for that one (although on today's evidence, my younger nephew would be good competition).
