I found out on Friday that I will be deploying to CFS Alert for six moths - in two to three weeks from now. This is a very short notice deployment, but that is sometimes how life goes in the military!
I will be able to run, spin, strength train and yoga up there (thank goodness they have two well equipped gyms there) but alas, no pool.
I am thinking that this blog will switch over more to a 'my life in Alert' while I am gone, with some training updates thrown in. I think that life in the high Arctic (approx 800 km from the geographical North Pole) will be pretty interesting and I want to be able to share what I experience.
For the next two weeks, life is going to be pretty crazy - getting everything ready to go. Have to make sure that I have a UV lamp - no sunlight in Alert until the end of February, eek!
