7,000 feet of elevation makes everything a little harder up here in Flagstaff. Most of the time its hard to walk, talk, or eat without getting short of breath, but that’s just part of the training effect you get while doing high altitude training. This was our 4th year in a row having a camp at higher elevation, and it’s amazing to see how far we’ve come since the first trip; we were able to do 3 of the most difficult weeks of training we’ve had in a really long time, and that’s all while breathing through a straw.

84 days until Rio starts and I think we can all say we’ve made huge strides since trials!

It's been a bit of an emotional rollercoaster but I did what I had to yesterday night to qualify for my 3rd Olympic Games!! I couldn't have done it without the amazing team of people around me, from the staff, to my teammates and my friends and family: you guys are absolutely amazing!

We had a fun and successful camp in Fort Lauderdale in preparation for Olympic Trials which begin today in Toronto. Nothing like a 40 degree spread in temperature to get you race ready.
