Blog #1 (Tues. Jan. 3 -- Wed. Jan. 4)
"Hóla from sunny Puerto Rico!! We landed yesterday (Tuesday) in
This morning (Wednesday), after eating breakfast we headed to the pool in
After practice we headed back to Rincon, grabbed some lunch at the hotel and headed out to get some more sun on the beach. (I have a feeling that we will be some of the most tan people on campus when classes start back up!) A few of us played 'beach baseball', using some driftwood as a bat and a coconut as the ball. Another group of people rented the banana boat and rode around on it for a while, only falling off a few times! And of course lots of pictures were taken, including one with an 1988 KU alumni! It seems you truly can find a Jayhawk anywhere you go. Thinking back during my previous training trips, I don’t think there has been one where we haven’t run across someone that graduated from KU, who greeted us with a Rock Chalk!
So far, it has been a great start to our trip, with more adventures still to come. Be sure to check back with kuthletics.com for more blog entries from my fellow seniors!"
