Christina came with to work on her skiing as well. Earlier that morning she ran a 5km PR on the way to her first age-group title, so now she's got her own running hardware to add to the award cabinet. Brennans taking over people. Watch out.

After Sunday morning's loops in Pajarito I stopped off in Jacona to help Will finish the studio he's building. An amazing looking place, even more so when you consider he literally pulled the sumofabitch out of the ground he's building on. He tells me the studio took 2,000 adobe bricks to put up, the unfinished house across the courtyard took 5,000. He spent the summer of 2009 framing and drying the bricks where the studio now stands. I can remember a giant swimming pool looking hole in the ground where the mud came out of.

The bathtub and toilet fixtures didn't want to fit into their measured spaces. Will just takes a hatchet to the adobe floor and wall, and Bam!, all fixtures sit according to design. Goats in the yard looked on but I had a suspicion they were staring down our taco dinner. If they were cooler goats they would've lent a hand (hoof) since there was a lot to be done. I'd imagine we'll be eating one of those goats right there in the courtyard some day. Too bad so sad pinche cabras.
