Tim and I just finished up a great dryland camp in Sun Valley with a huge group of skiers there from the USST, Sun Valley ODT, Methow, and CXC. After having barely ventured out of Craftsbury all summer it was nice to mix up the training with a new location and some new people. It was hard training with a lot of intensity, a few very tough time trials, and some awesome OD runs and hikes in the mountains. I also added some golf training to the plan with a few recovery sessions at the Sun Valley Club putting greens and a round of “Cabin Golf” at Mikey Sinnott’s cabin on Petit Lake. The mornings were quite chilly adding the excitement of fall but with the exception of one cold rainy day, Sun Valley lived up to its name with lots of sunny skies. Here are a couple pictures from one of our runs up to Pioneer Cabin at 9400′.
I’ll try to post a few more pictures as soon as I upload them from my camera. Also check out www.nccsef.org where Pete Vordenberg has posted lots of updates and great pictures from the camp.
It was a really fun camp so I was sad to leave but luckily there are many more adventures ahead! Late last night I flew back to Vermont and now I’m headed to Dartmouth as soon as I finish hurriedly throwing all my belongings into the back of my car. School starts bright and early tomorrow morning…..uh oh!
