I hope everyone stateside had a wonderful 4th of July weekend. From all-day barbeques to nighttime fireworks, days off work to breakfast at Wimbeldon, this holiday always seems to deliver some great memories. For me, 2011’s independence day weekend offered an austere escape to California’s Lost Coast. I trained hard, ate well, and relaxed in a place where nature continues to reign supreme. We ran the mountains, swam the ocean, lunged across blackened beaches, climbed stony outcroppings, and pressed barbells in the sand. All the while working to come home with a tan.

With the Games a month away I couldn’t feel better or more prepared. My program has me resting this upcoming week before 2 more training weeks leading up to the big show. I want to thank Kevin and the Leary family for letting me tag along this weekend. Below are some pictures and videos from the weekend.
