Glasgow International Match
Quick Recap: I flew out of Portland Wednesday morning and landed in Glasgow Thursday afternoon. The hosting organization for this meet was great. Someone was waiting to pick me up and zoom me to the hotel. I checked in and went on a nice shakeout run with my roommate for the weekend, Geena Gall.

I really enjoyed the posted training videos to get insight on what your supplemental training consisted of. So, hows training in Oregon going? What made you guys decide to leave Colorado?
