Today we went to the Olympic Training Facility in Colorado Springs. The athletes like to train at a very high elevation because it helps them when they compete at lower elevations.
This is the dorms that the athletes stay in when they are staying on site. You can stay up to 6 years except Apollo Ohno stretched it out and stayed 7 years.
This is the dining hall. There food had beat out 5-star hotels in there food quality. Plus it is all served buffet style with the calories listed next to the food.

When we left the Olympic Training facility we headed over to Focus on the Family to Whit's End based on the Adventures in Odyssey series.
While we were there we recorded an episode of Adventure in Odyssey to take home with us. Elizabeth and I did the speaking parts and Daniel and Matthew were "Foley" which is what the sound/special effects crew is called. When we were finished the lady said that we were really good. I think that they don't have many 23 and 24 year old come into record!
