Another thing we have not done!  I am realizing all of the INDOOR things we have not done, but maybe this winter we can get to some of them! Nice post!

Hi Marianne, this is news to me!  Do you know, do all Olympiads train there?  Another place to add to the list!  Thanks, Marianne.

Cheryl: Take care, because they said it was mostly otdoors!

Hi Mary: I don't know but, I don't think all train there. Like archery, they probably wouldn't benefit from the reduced oxygen like runners. I know gymnist, and skaters do. And weight lifters, too. Because we get athlete sighting around town.
