So far this summer, I have spent most of my time in Marquette. Training has been going well, thanks to the guidance of Andy Keller. In early June, Kyle, Andy, and myself joined a Loppet Nordic Racing College camp in Hayward, Wisconsin.
We got to train with Brian Gregg (Team Gregg) and Andy Shields (Canada) for a couple days.
I previously had not done much roller skiing in that area. Now, I understand why so many skiers have spent their summers in Hayward. The back roads are great for roller skiing with not a lot of car traffic.
After the couple days in Hayward I went home for a yearly fishing trip, Burt’s Boat Bash that my grandpa Burt started in 2000. All of the guys on my dad’s side of the family, and some close friends, spend a day together.
