When you first enter the town of Mammoth Lakes, you are greeted with a “Welcome” sign that also includes one of John Muir’s most beloved quotes, “The Mountains are Calling…” I haven’t spent much time in the Eastern Sierras before, though after reading anything by John Muir, and admiring Ansel Adam’s photographs, it was easy to be infatuated with this area before even visiting. There’s a certain magic to these mountains and I’m grateful that I now get to fully experience this place.
It’s the final week of training already, time flies when you’re on the run! The physical work is done, now it’s time to visualize your race. Keep your thoughts in check heading into the final stretch; your race is no different than any other step in your training it’s just an opportunity to show off all of your hard work!
