    • Arizona - the trilogy: Mark Arendz

      November 1, 2013

      For the last dry-land training camp of the year I made the now familiar trip south to the state of Arizona. Flagstaff and Phoenix played host to this third and final camp before the race season begins. It was a much smaller camp then the September edition with only two athletes from the team there along with Coach Robin. Two athletes from the Yukon Elite Ski Team joined us to complete a nice car full for the camp. We enjoyed fantastic weather and got in a lot of excellent training during our stay. As the weather back home was changing into autumn, Arizona stayed as consistent as weather gets. Flagstaff was clear skies every day and started from -1oc in the morning to 16-19oc as a high. Phoenix was reaching highs that were over 30oc with lows of pleasant high teens. We only saw clouds the one day, the rest were bluebird. It was neat this trip to see that after the previous two trips south that people started recognizing us.
