Ready for World Champs!

Exciting news, you guys! Thanks to USSA, you can now watch all of our races at World Champs! Follow along as we start the races this Thursday in Lahti, Finland. We’ve been working so hard towards these races since May (and, to be honest, for the last 5 years because it takes that long to build up fitness!) and I’m super excited to get these races underway!

Here’s how you can watch: Each day of the Championships, NBCsports.com will provide live streaming with full same-day event coverage of each medal competition on either NBCSN or Universal HD. Check out the schedule below for times (and so you know what we’re racing each day)!

I’m really sorry – I realize that many of these events take place in the middle of the night! But, that’s why there is the TV broadcast option for you to watch later!

Last weekend it was great to get back to racing the World Cups again in Estonia. After a 3 week break I was feeling antsy to go again! My plan was to just race the sprint and then make sure that going into World Champs I’m super, super rested up since I’d like to do quite a bit of racing in the next 2 weeks.

The skate sprint went well for me – making it to the finals consistently is a goal I’ve been working hard towards and it was great to set my sights high on the day! We had totally awesome skis and it’s so important to thank the service team because it takes such a huge team of people to carry the small team of racers!

Which made the tech team sprints the night before so fun to see! Finally, a race where all our service team gets to shine! These are held every couple years when we race in Estonia and it’s always my favorite event of the year to see.

They’re at night under the bright stadium lights, and each country gets to enter one team of 3, and each person skis 2 laps total of the 600 meter course (usually it’s half of the sprint course). The tag zone is always total chaos and this year didn’t disappoint, but the real standout for us was seeing Andrew Morehouse, Tim Baucom and our wax tech Oleg Ragilo’s son, Frank, race around the course.

Now we’re excited to tackle the 6 races of World Champs. I’m going to end this post with a puppy photo, because in a few weeks this cute little guy will be coming to the Diggins household. And while he has nothing to do with racing, it’s too cute not to share. A happy skier is a fast skier, so I look at this photo daily. Now you can, too!

Look at that little guy! (photo from my Mom)

Vålådalen Pre-camp

It’s always tricky to know EXACTLY how to best prepare for the upcoming World Championships, but all you can do is make your very best plan and then run with it! And that’s what we did. To me, spending 2.5 weeks in a cozy little town in Sweden accompanied by…

On caring, trying and risking failure

All you can ever give is your best shot. But that’s actually much harder to do than it sounds. It’s incredibly hard to care about something so much that you put everything you have towards it, without holding anything back in your mind. It’s scary to risk failure. I mean,…

The post-tour-de-ski-party

Wow, it’s crazy how fast time goes by when you’re racing, racing, racing! The Tour de Ski was such a blast this year, and I was happy not only with my own racing but in seeing the determination, grit and mental strength of my teammates and our staff! The Tour…

The last of 2016

Here comes another round of photos! It’s been a while, but since I last posted I traveled to La Clusaz feeling great and fully intending to do some awesome skate racing. Then I got the cold that made it’s way through our entire team (staff included) and wasn’t able to…

The Davos week!

Buckle up for a nice long post (mostly photos though, don’t worry)! Every year I look forward to coming to Davos because it’s become our home away from home here in Europe. Our team has been staying at the Hotel Kulm since the 80’s and the family-run hotel has treated…

I just LOVE those 5km skates!

Wow! I don’t know what to say, except that I’ve been so fortunate to have such a strong team that helped me get my second career World Cup win this weekend! You can’t ever accomplish anything alone in life, and all the hours of training with my teammates, the support…

For the Love of Glitter

Here we go again! The first World Cup weekend is under our belts and it felt SO GOOD to get the jitters out! I never know how it’s going to go until I’m actually on the course, racing, so it was a relief to get the first races out of…

Ready to start the new season!

The last week at home was wonderful…and so busy! I somehow managed to get all my bags packed ahead of time and avoided my mistakes of last year. Namely, I didn’t wear my Mom’s slippers onto the plane instead of my running shoes. Yep. I did that. But this year,…

Home again – and contest!

My goodness, it’s been a busy day! Roller ski speed training, visiting the Slumberland Furniture main office to meet with my awesome headgear sponsors, getting my teeth cleaned by the friendly people at Art and Science Dentistry, voting for the next President of the United States of America, strength training…
