The last couple of days have been so amazing and special – I feel like the photos and words truly don’t do the trip any justice. The photo shoot aspect was incredible but even more so was the opportunity to meet and get to know some of the other girls participating in the 2015 Saucony 26 Strong Campaign.
I landed in San Diego late Monday morning and after making my way to the hotel in La Jolla (Estancia La Jolla), went for a short 5 mile recovery/shakeout run in the area. There was NOTHING easy or flat about this run but it was incredibly gorgeous – and the type of run where you just want to keep running.
After a shower and freshening up, I met up with Ruth, who had just landed, and we made our way to dinner to meet the other girls as well as Erin and Allison (reps from Competitor) and Nils (our amazing photographer). The food was delicious -but even more amazing was how fast we all just clicked – by the end of dinner, it felt like we were old friends getting together for a girls weekend.
