In between the rainy rollerskis, the hours in the gym, and the seemingly endless mountain runs that occupy most of my summer training hours, Alaska provides ample opportunities for summer adventures a little out of the ordinary or at least worthy of taking out the camera. Since ending the season I have been on a roll fitting in every adventure possible; however, today is a little lacking. Maybe it’s a blog day instead of an adventure day.
For those of you that are curious, training in AK has been going well. The APU team is looking stronger than ever and we are managing some impressive performances (yes I am talking about myself in this) at the local mountain running races. We have also all managed to survive the snow, sunburn, and fog that greeted us for the first glacier camp of the summer. In between 3 helicopter flights, 4 books, 29 hours of skiing, and thousand calorie snacks I managed to take one picture. Luckily, I have been on lots of other adventures that can fill in the photograph gaps.
