Sochi Strength Adventure

It was quite an ordeal getting to strength yesterday. Chris Grover spent a couple of hours finding a gym. First we took the snow machine taxi to the gondola.

Then we took the gondola down the mountain.

Then we took some “electric-mobiles” to the gym.


Most of the team went on the adventure. Here are Simi Hamilton (left), Liz Stephen and Andy Newell:

The gym was located in a 5-star resort near the base of the gondola.

The gym itself wasn’t incredibly nice, but it was great for our needs. The pool area looked incredible. You could swim into the pool from inside the locker rooms.

The sunset was awesome when we got back up the mountain.

This morning we woke up to a socked-in snowy day. I walked to breakfast with Holly Brooks:
