I’m back out in California, except this time I’m up in Mammoth Lakes for 10 days (or more if by some crazy chance someone reading this is staying up here and wants to let us bum on the floor…)

We drove up here on Sunday and it took a little while longer than we hoped. One of the vans broke down, so we were stuck in the middle of nowhere in the desert for about an hour. Once we got here though, we forgot all about the travel troubles.

I can see why Ryan Hall, Deena Kastor, and all of those other pro’s live and train up here. The scenery is amazing and the places too train are great too. I’ll upload some photos/video sometime when I have a chance (we have no internet unless we go to the library).

I’m putting in about 16 a day up here and have had some good runs. On monday, me and Carlos did a fartlek at 9,000 feet. It actually felt a lot better than I expected. For those of you who are track nuts, we did the workout around Lake Mary, which is where Ryan Hall does some of his faster stuff.

That’s about all I have time for now. More later.
