We’re off today, folks – a caravan of fantastic friends, including my sister Jess,  our friends sisters Andrea and Jen (this is their second RT), Shannon (her first RT!) as well as Heather (who I am so excited to meet when she arrives tomorrow!!), and friends from last year coming again this year. It’s going to be fun, it’s going to be “wicked hahhhd,” it’s going to be tiring, but it’s going to be memorable and one of the highlights of this summer – and year – for sure.
