My friend and I have just returned from Penticton, where were spent 5 days providing Massage Therapy for the Triathletes in the Penticton Ironman. It was much more interesting and fun than I thought it would be. Basically, people would sign up for either 1/2 hour or 1 hour sessions as a pre or post event massage. It was an interesting take on things as it is one thing to prepare an athlete for one event but these were people that were going to do 3 events as quickly as they could. I was a little bit intimidated by the whole thing. Made me want to come home and start training right away. There were about 2500 racers all packed into one area and they were all fit. I heard stories about the types of injuries that came in with muscle tears and torn tendons ect. but I didn’t see one of those while I was there. There were people hobbling around, nursing the bodies that they tortured the day before. It is always a good trip, going up into the Okanagan, as I know a lot of people up there and it is good to hook up with them. Always sad to have to go but always great to see them. I think that I will do the trip again next year for sure.
