Man, is it hot or what?!!!!

--So hot I even cut off all my hair!

It has been blazing hot here in Monterey...the temps. on the trails are down right brutal after about noon. Note, 3 hrs on the mountain bike with 2 water bottles is stupid! I think I just now got rehydrated and got rid of my headache. I just didn't think it would get so hot here but, that's the thing with mountain biking, there isn't a 7-11 or starbucks on every corner so leave prepared =)
So, yesterday I went for my long run a little earlier in the day and managed to avoid the high temps. After my run I went over to the pool and got in 2500 and it felt GREAT!
After training and some work, Jess and I went to the beach to get out of the heat and we had an awesome time. The sun was out, it wasn't very crowded, and sophie was chasing her tennis ball like she was possessed. Carmel Beach is really a magical place and one that we will always regard as one of the most special places in the world. It will be hard to part with this place.

Today is a long ride and then Jess and I will find something relaxing to do.

"will be hard to part with this place." Dude, it's true. You live in a very very beautiful place.

But SD will be awesome, too!

I'll be emailing you about my race.
Things went great!

What's up with JW taking over Maui!?
