It seems hard to believe it, but we’re already finishing up our 4th week of summer training. Here are some photos:

Unloading the van: 6:30 AM.
A rough Friday morning at the office
Up we go…
The easier way up (if you're punching through)
Nice view and decent conditions
Yep, nice view
Klister skiing in the PM
Hiking near Mt. Prindle. We were socked-in for most of the day, but we were still treated to some amazing wild flowers.
Tom, our fearless leader.
Hiking over rocks: great for leg strength, balance and endurance
3k test: Kyle and James on their way to times in the 9:30s
Mikayla and Skeeto moving well in the early going
Helen, Claire, Kira
Gotta love the flying braid
Dan and Vanya – pushing the limits (and the lane lines)
Kira leads off for the Miller Hill Double Pole Test
There were some huge PRs up Miller Hill.
