Summertime at the mountaintop!  Check out this sign at winter:)

Let me tell you about my past three days…

On saturday, I drank a few Norcal Margaritas while navigating a 40′ Beneteau style sailboat. A lifetime goal of mine is to sail around the world, so I was stoked at the experience.  We went from the Marina down to Santa Monica and back.  I still have a lot to learn!  The following day I found myself at Mammoth mountain, downhill mountain biking for the first time. I don’t know how many of you have had this experience, but it was unreal! I can’t believe I have never heard anyone talk about this! We took the gondola to the top of the mountain (the same one for skiing) and the three of us zigzagged our way down the mountain, through trees, around sharp turns, on cliff sides, around lakes… it was exhilarating and exhausting! Unlike skiing down the mountain, just one trip down the hill lasted well over an hour. We followed that day up with kayaking in Lake Mary and zipping out to Yosemite for a day of hiking, scrambling on boulders and misting ourselves in waterfalls.

I’m not telling you this to make you jealous, but to explain how crazy I am for not wanting to go!  I was more or less forced into this sequence of events!  In case you didn’t know, we have been hosting my mother-in-law for the past month and Martina has been showing her around town. Work has been busy and I was training for the upcoming Central Coast Clash.  This weekend trip was an extravagance I could not afford to take!  Well, when I got out there, and broke my regular schedule I had been on, it all came flooding back.  This is what I live for.  This is what I train for.  This is why I work so hard.  This is how I believe people should spend their free time.  I am not exemplifying the life I believe in.  I am working too much and not playing enough!  My wish for myself, the rest of the PCF staff and all of you is that you can work a job that you love while having enough time to pursue your dreams.

   Our job is to prepare you for those moments.  So train hard to live hard.  (and I’ll see you on the mountain bike, amazing!  Watch this video)
