In wanting to get updates on the Tour De France a couple years ago, I wound up on the Carmichael Training System’s emailing list.
Weekly, I get emails about climbing and biking camps all over the country. Since I don’t live in Boulder, it would require travel, hotel stays, etc. in addition to the (high) cost of the camp itself.
But if I ever became a lady of leisure, I would:
Hire a full time coach
Go to various sports camps for stuff I suck at
Pay someone to wash my hair once a week. Seriously, that’s divine.
Laser etch the Jolly Roger on the moon.
Get massages twice a week.
I would also do this:
“Welcome to The Surf Diva Costa Rica Surf Adventure!

A crew teammate went, it was an anniversary gift from her husband. I looked it up and have been daydreaming about it ever since.
I’m from the beach, and I never learned to surf. And this just sounds like paradise.
Maybe next year. One fantasy at a time and this year is Ironman.
