Santa Barbara, California.
Sun. Ocean. Mountains. Winding roads. Infinity pool.
This is going to be a phenomenal training camp.
We made our way up the Santa Ynez Mountain side late last night, carefully manoeuvring the dark, steep hairpin turns and eventually arriving at our beautiful home for the next month overlooking the city of Santa Barbara. With a mountain facing bedroom curiosity won over fatigue and I stumbled outside into a breathtaking setting.
The house, pool deck, and gardens are simply gorgeous. Grape fruit, orange, and avocado trees can be found on the lower part of the property and are heavy with delicious fruit hanging on solid branches just waiting for me to climb.
After a relaxing morning we headed to the track for a light workout to get the legs moving again. The beautiful facility inspired everyone to get moving, and Gar and Dennis lifted a few weights while Damian and I warmed up.
I can’t wait to really get moving, especially after following the results of the CIS and NCAA championships that just took place this weekend. Congrats to all the athletes, near and far!
I am so freakin in love with this sport.
