First Post and Weekend Recap, Sam Tarling

Tuesday, February 26th, 2008

Hey everyone! I hope you enjoy learning about our Program. We’ll try to keep you updated with what is going on in our busy lives.

This past weekend we all attended the last Eastern Cup races. We had some good results, Lucy G was third in the 5km skate, even with a fall near the finish. I finished 5 seconds in front of MWSC’s Fred Bailey, for the win. I was just barely able to hold him off on the last lap where he made up 15 seconds on me.

Sunday was not so hot for me. My skis were slippery and I was pretty sore and tired from the day before. The NE JO Team naming ceremony was that afternoon; Caitlin Curran and Corinne Prevot qualified for New England (Lucy and I auto qualified). It was a sad day for our teammates who did not qualify but we look forward to meeting them in Canada for the Canadian Nationals at Whistler. Dylan Pudiak will compete at JO’s for the Mid Atlantic region.
