Mammoth Lakes in SI

I was happy to see the latest issue of Sports Illustrated focused on the training towns of our Olympic hopefuls. In particular, it mentioned Chula Vista and Mammoth Lakes. I visited the former during college and it is just as beautiful and conducive to training as you could expect. The latter seems awesome as well (and especially because Meb, the Halls, and Deena all reside there).

They have some photos online.

Good luck with your quest! I want to run a 3:15 marathon and I'm not even recovering from pregnancy. Mammoth Lakes is a great place to live and train and I am lucky to call Deena, Meb, Ryan and others my friends (yes, they have friends who run 3:48 marathons).
