There was an unofficial CXC Team Vertical Limit training camp held in Crested Butte, CO over this past weekend. The players were myself, Maria Stuber, and Gus Kaeding. However, it was not just a training camp, but it was also my best-friend’s wedding. Our former NMU Ski Team teammates James Letson and Kelly Ahern were married at the amazing Lazy F Bar Ranch in Crested Butte. This place was unreal, and the weather for the wedding was perfect.
If you have never been to Crested Butte you are really missing out. The whole town was great for anything outdoor, as well as indoor, where we celebrated James’ bachelor party on Friday night. We then hiked up Mount Crested Butte on Saturday until we cleared 10,000 feet. The rehearsal dinner was on Saturday night, and then the wedding at 4 p.m. on Sunday.
Currently, Maria and I are still in Colorado for the rest of the week. We are staying near Boulder with our good friend’s Tami Kochen and Shane Mundt of Mundt Arts. We will be here training at altitude until Saturday when we will fly back to Milwaukee and go to Maria’s high school friend Nicole’s wedding. Back-to-back wedding weekends are going to be pretty intense, but we are both really looking forward to it. After that it is back to Marquette for some more working and training.
