Land of the Bears!

Land of the Bears!

The other day I traveled far and wide, and across large bodies of waters to get to the Land of the Bears!  Ok, all kidding aside – reality was I only drove about 30 miles and over the Bay Bridge to train at Cal (UC Berkeley).

Front entrance of Cal gym. For those of you that have never been, it's all the way up on top of a hill!

I had a great workout with the college guys and it’s always fun to train in a different environment every once in a while.  Turns out, our national team director was visiting so it was a great opportunity to get some feedback from him as well.  The Cal guys are looking strong!  Stanford and Cal have been back and forth during the regular season so it’ll be interesting to see which team pulls ahead for the NCAA Championships.

Although I went to school at Stanford, I feel closely connected to Cal in many ways. For one, I grew up right around the corner, and two, my dad used to be the head coach for the boys gymnastics team .  That said, although I will always be a Cardinal, I still support the Golden Bears!

Thanks to the Cal team for having me in the other day.  Good luck for the rest of the season!

    My level 4 son had a wonderful time watching your demo at the Champions Invitational this last weekend. We were reading your blog a minute ago and he wants to let you know you can eat at his grandma’s house this weekend during the qualifiers. That aside, if you go to the area near the mission in downtown SLO and there are a few nice places that are fairly healthy.
