I think congratulations are in order for many people today.

First, I would like to congratulate everyone who was chosen to be a FitFluential Ambassador! I hope it gives you a lot of fun and new experiences. I didn't apply for two reasons. One, I didn't know about it until after applications were due. Two, I think my blog is too all over the place. Its not a dedicated fitness blog like a lot of the ones that were chosen. But in my defense, fitness is more than just being vegan and losing weight. You have to be fit to play hockey, soccer, baseball, etc. so maybe that fact that I talk about being a triathlete AND a huge sports fan might play in my favor.

Anyways, another HUGE congratulations to the BRUINS! If you don't already know, they won one of the most coveted (although, I'd argue THE most coveted) trophy in all of professional sports...the Stanley Cup! Its so crazy living in the town of the Stanley Cup champions. People were going crazy, screaming, blowing whistles, honking car horns, waving flags, etc. all over the place last night. I guess, it was even worse down by the Garden (where the Bruins play their home games).

I think in comparison to what it could have been, the riots were rather tame.

This morning, the local TV stations showed the plane landing and the buses driving back to the Garden from the airport. And of course they arrived to the welcome of many cheering fans. It just makes me want to be a Stanley Cup winning ATC even more.

I've never been to a championship parade either, so here's to hoping its tomorrow morning (riiiight) so I can go. I have the race Saturday and am out of town for my conference Sunday through Wednesday.

Throwback Thursday:

Fingers crossed you can watch the victory parade! I've only ever been to one for the Champions League, in 2005, and it was very fun, though very cramped!

They just announced it is Saturday at 11AM, so I won't be able to go. I'll be thinking about it will I'm on the bike during the race...LOL.
