Shelter Cove Weekend

I spent the holiday weekend in Shelter Cove, CA- a small fishing town just south of Arcata. It’s remote, beautiful, and home to only a few hundred residents, two of which happen to be my good friend Kevin’s parents. It features jagged coastline, black sand beaches, and hills upon hills for the would-be incline runner. In all, the weekend offered me respite from the mental drain of routine life in Sacramento and ample opportunity to train hard in an unknown environment.

I trained twice on Saturday (videos below), bouldered and surfed on Sunday, and ran a 2 mile, 1600 ft mountain before driving home on Monday. I can’t think of a better weekend leading into the NorCal regional competition this coming Friday. I feel re-charged and psychologically motivated in a very healthy way. I may iron out some technical issues before the event, but intend mostly to rest up and get fresh before heading down Thursday night. Check out the videos below for a glimpse of the Cove.
