I keep telling you guys that you need to get in touch with me in case you ever want to do something totally awesome.
As many of you know my wife is Peruvian, so after our arduous school year, we decided to head down to Peru to show off our new baby to the extended family. Well, once I knew I was coming down, I sent off an email to Roberto Carcelen, Peru's first Olympic athlete (cross-country skiier naturally), and Roberto convinced me to come along on this trip from Choquequirao to Machu Picchu.
You can read about the details in the official press release that Roberto sent me. I tell you though, if there's one thing that is always a bad idea, it's going on a 10 day running trip at altitude with a bunch of Olympic athletes. In fact, Roberto called me up the other day to ask what kind of shape I'm in.
When Olympians ask you what kind of shape your in the answer is always...TERRIBLE!
Needless to say, I'm not going to run this like the rest of them, and if I need an excuse for why I'm so slow, I'm going to blame my camera (because I'm going to be taking a lot of pictures).
I'd really like to start making our shop in St. Croix Falls the launching point for a bunch of marvelous adventures like this. Stay tuned for more information!
