Spring Recap(with video)!

What happened this spring?

  1. I am starting up my blog again! After today, I plan to post one every Monday!
  2. I finished my first term of college at Dartmouth. I absolutely loved it!
  3. I headed out to Park City for a short camp. I learned about body movement and how to properly fuel for workouts. I was also able to work with my strength coaches and PT’s and make some substantial progress.

4. I am trying to get into mountain biking because it is great cross training and lots of fun!

6. I finally came around to making my season edit! After getting a new hard drive and recovering my files on my broken hard drive, I was now able to put something together. It is hard to recap a whole season full adventures, but here are some of the highlights. There is a lot of daily life footage because this is something that isn’t shown as often and I think that it plays a huge role in skiing because it is not only a sport, but a lifestyle as well.

What a year, thank YOU!

Wow, the season is over! I don’t even know where to begin?! I faced numerous challenges this year, many more than I would have hoped for. I am however, fortunate to have had the opportunity to face and overcome my challenges successfully. They have made me stronger mentally and physically, they have taught me how […]

10 Things I learned from racing in Europe for the past 4 weeks !

Things I learned from racing in Europe for the past 4 weeks (in no particular order)… Americans have no reason to doubt that they can’t ski with the top skiers. We had multiple top 10 results at the OPA Cup races. We had multiple top 20’s at World Juniors. A German coach even came up […]

TEAM

Cross-country skiing is an individual sport but it cannot be done without a team. I think what has made this trip so successful is the team atmosphere. Often times in the past I have found that being one of the youngest ones on the trip can be hard, but this year I haven’t even noticed […]

1. Comfortable 2. Confident 3. Gritty

*Photos are on my Facebook since they will not upload for some reason. Check them out, there are a bunch! Comfortable, confident and gritty were my three cue words for World Juniors this year. Last year was my first time going to world juniors and I was so overwhelmed and intimidated. This year I went […]

World Junior Championships in Romania!

World Juniors started off with a bang in Romania! With the lack of snow, the race timeline got moved up significantly. Believe it or not, I finished both of my individual starts before the opening ceremonies had happened. I think that the unusual conditions and change in race days played to my advantage because I […]

Last week in Stratton.

It is shocking that I am heading to Europe in only 2 days and my time at Stratton is over! Between exciting activities with friends and packing, my last week at Stratton was filled with a lot of bittersweet moments. I was really glad to see that winter has finally arrived. Although the skiing on […]

The Little Things

Pushing over the top of one hill, stretching after a workout, playing a game of basketball with friends, dialing in your skis, keeping your head up… these are all the little things that can make a huge difference in summation. Whether you do one of these things or not, it probably will not change the […]

Sm;)es and Pain Faces

I let my teeth shine this week, whether I was smiling or showing my pain face. This week started off with skate speeds, usually one of my favorite workouts. Excited for the workout, I was pretty bummed to feel flat and slow during the whole workout. I kept my focus during the workout, but I […]

Content.

Everyone in our house has found their way back Stratton this week, making our house full and very lively. Gabe, Lauren and I had a cleaning night where we organized the kitchen so all 6 of us (Lauren, Gabe, Ben, Erika, Annie H., and I) could fit our food. We have had a few fun […]
