Junior Nationals Recap – Pics!

Saturday, March 23rd, 2013

I am doing one more quick post letting people know about two cool things that are still in action from Junior Nationals in Fairbanks…

.

First, if you are one of the countless people who wanted to buy one of those sweet custom Junior National commemorative E’Klaar beanies but weren’t able to because of the fact that they all sold out before the first race even started… don’t worry, there’s another chance! E’Klaar is doing another run of them, and you can order them HERE.

And if you weren’t there, but maybe your child was, and you want to remember the event through something cool and hip that will actually get used, instead of another grey race t shirt, then you are in luck too!! Again, click HERE to get yours, or go to EKLAAR.COM

And also, the above photo of my brother is by Bert Boyer, and is one of thousands of his amazing photographs of the events that are for sale HERE, with all proceeds going to the National Nordic Foundation (NNF). Bert takes great quality photos, and was incredibly thorough that week, loading thousands and thousands of photos onto his site. If you knew someone who was there racing, there are pictures of them in action at http://bertboyer.zenfolio.com/f490643483

Thanks for reading! Ill be putting up another post with some adventures from the far North soon!

Update & Junior Nationals Pics

Friday, March 15th, 2013

After racing the Madison Super Tour sprints, I returned to Anchorage and have just been in decompression mode a little bit. I had been traveling on the road for quite a long time, almost 4 months, basically since the 10th of November. When you go that long, racing twice a weekend for weeks on end, its really hard to do much training. So it was nice to take a little chill when I got back home, and then get back into some solid training with my focus on Spring Nationals in April.

.

In the last few weeks, I’ve gotten to do some cool media events here in Anchorage. First, I got to be part of a ConocoPhillips advertisement shoot, where we did some posed waxing and skiing. It’s going to be a TV ad featuring some of us APU Nordic Ski Center athletes and ConocoPhillips employees. It was the biggest scale shoot I had been a part of, and it was sweet to see how it all happens; so many people, cameras, and light setups everywhere.

I also got to drop the first puck at an Aces game. If you aren’t from Alaska, the Aces are our pro hockey team, and they have been at the top of the league in the last few years. They had a whole APU night there at the game, and we got to hang out in the VIP lounge before and after the game, eating the unlimited food, which was pretty awesome. Fellow Elite Team member Lauren Fritz and I walked out to center ice and got things rolling with our ceremonial drop:

Now, I am up in Fairbanks at Junior Nationals, watching and cheering. It’s been fun to hang out with all my friends and get them pumped for their races. My brother is racing in his last JNs, and its been fun to be a part of.

.

Local photographer and longtime ski parent Bert Boyer is taking his usual awesome pictures of these races, and is doing something awesome… they are for sale on his website, and he is donating all of the money to the NNF. This is an amazing, gracious gesture, and I hope that all of you athletes and parents that want photos from JOS will buy them from Bert. You can see them, and purchase them, HERE, or go to:
