Summer Tahoe Trip

Alpine Meadows 5 Lakes Hike

Megan and I took our annual trip to Lake Tahoe last week. The past two years we have tried to squeeze everything into 3 or 4 days. This year we just went for the full 8 days 7 nights. It was epic. I’m so grateful to have a team of coaches and business partners that allow me to take time like this. I felt recharged by the experience and excited about the year to come. It felt the the first real break since the games.

Every day we got up casually, took a hot tub, worked out, made great breakfast, hiked, beached, worked out some more, cooked elaborate dinners, watched TV shows, stayed up late, slept in late, and just had a memorable time. We have some friends come to visit and it helped cap off one of the best weeks in a long time.

The perfect vacation = relaxation, training, good cooking, no plans, beautiful scenery, great company. Check!

Check out some of the scenic workouts.
