2017: Day 2
Goodbyes suck. That’s why I’m going to keep this short.
5 years ago I met a wonderful group of people who pushed me, challenged me, and some days you beat the living crap out of me). But you made me a much stronger person. It’s been an honour sweating with you, cursing the kilometers ahead, struggling during some really difficult days but ultimately celebrating some of the most incredible moments of my life. What an unbelievable journey! I know that Linda and I will meet some new triathlete friends in the Okanagan, but I doubt I’ll find a group of coffee crazy nut-jobs as special as you guys.
Speaking of coffee crazy nut-jobs, this bad boy has you covered. I figured we had to make a coffee inspired drink since this is the one beverage that defines this club. I can’t think of single workout that didn’t end in a coffee shop. Forget Bitcoin, I think Starbucks will be the new global currency.
2 ounces of coffee liqueur is offset by 3 ounces of vanilla vodka (to counteract any affects of any lingering caffeine). 2 tablespoons of heavy cream rounds it out. This drink is almost a “Vanilla latte martini” but I doubled the heavy cream (most of you could use a little more fat in your diet).
Cheers to you guys! Though I won’t see you along Zero Avenue or at Watermania at 6:00am, when you’re in the Okanagan I’m sure I can find something just as cruel
