In 2013, I started to incorporate altitude into my training, and I fell in love with Big Bear. The charming mountain town is only two hours from Los Angeles, the perfect elevation for endurance adaptation(6800 feet) , but only a short drive to sea level, making it easy to “live high, train low.” I’d always have to bum at a friend’s house or a get a cheap motel, wishing that there was a good rental available for athletes. It’s too late for me, but I set up this cabin with that in mind. Now, you have a place to visit for a weekend to enjoy yourself, or buckle down with a teammates for a couple weeks to get fit for a big event.
