I wanted a place to journal all my travels and adventures around the world. I always enjoy going back and reflecting on my past travels and getting to relive them through my words and photos.

Rest day with the family - Day 4 - 2012 Indy 500 Motorcycle Trip

Saturday, May 26, 2012 @ 5:00 PM in General Travel

Today was simply meant to be a rest day before the big race tomorrow and to handle any recovery from yesterday. I got up around 9:30am which isn't too bad considering I didn't get to bed until about 2:30am. My dad made an eggs and bacon breakfast which was really good and we started trying to figure out what we wanted to do today.

My mom wanted to get me a back and neck massage since I had spent those two full days on my bike so I let her talk me into that. I'm not really a huge fan of massages since I usually come out feeling worse than I did going into them. This one was about as expected but it still felt nice to get some of the tight spots in my back worked on.

We came back to the house and relaxed a bit before lunch which consisted of turkey sandwiches that my dad had smoked a few weeks ago. Smoked turkey sandwiches are the best if you get a chance to make them! We then ran a few errands and came back in time to have dinner with my grandparents.

I found out we were leaving from my friends house tomorrow at 6:00am so it was going to be an early night for me. I relaxed with the family for a bit and started getting ready for bed around 9 in order to get up by 5am.

They're saying tomorrow is supposed to be record setting temperatures so I've decided to bring my 3 liter camelpak with me so I can hopefully stay hydrated during the race tomorrow.
