Travel Update: Angie and Trev’s Most Excellent Summer Adventure!

We have been on the road since June 10th and have covered about 5,500 miles with our camper and our kids.

On the most recent leg of our journey we left Washington State and crossed the border into Canada and drove through beautiful British Columbia from bottom to top. After 4 days we made it to the Yukon Territory and the next day dropped down into Skagway Alaska.

Next stop the Juneau Marathon!

    Great episode. I added yoga 6 years ago to my training as a compliment to my training for road races. Now, my only regret is not having done it for the last 20 years. it has added so much to my training and my life. Also, despite not being a novice on the subject, I still learned a lot during your interview… Thanks, again.

      Thanks Adolfo! I’m glad that integrating yoga into your training the last few years has made a positive difference. I feel the same way!
