Girona to Leeds

Holy moly! I'm flying from Girona to Leeds! And it isn't for a vacation ;) It was nerve wracking when I had the tendonitis flare up in Suisse, but thankfully I received great help from the team and the treatment I received in Basel was top notch. My therapist Tobi took wonderful care of me and got me back to health quickly. After my return from Basel I had a week to sort out some serious craziness in Girona. With the help of my wonderful wife I knocked it out though. First I got back to some quality training and got my legs back under me. Then the big deal was moving to our new apartment. It was a little crazy but had to be done. The first step in our move was finding some boxes. That journey began with us driving around and "dumpster diving". Thankfully we didn't have much trouble filling our car with boxes of varying sizes. We began packing some boxes over the weekend to try not to leave everything to the last moment on Monday. Even with our preparation, we spent the whole day yesterday moving our things to the new apartment. We finally called it a night at 10 because we needed dinner and to be ready for me to depart today. It was not our ideal "send off" for the Tour, but it will still be a good memory and special part of my first Tour experience. I'll try to post pics and updates throughout my Tour experience. Hope you enjoy!
