Bring it ON

It’s incredible. It’s that time of year again for the time trials out here at Soldier Hollow. After these time trials, the racing season is only a little over a month away. CRAZY! EXCITING! (maybe a little intimidating??)

Of the 4 years that I have come to this camp, I have never felt as good as I do this time around. In previous years, I am usually tired, drained from the heavy training, breathless from the altitude by this time. But, not right now. I’ve had some really solid interval sessions, and although the shooting may be a little inconsistent, I am confident that I will be able to pull it together to create some good performances. I’ve never felt so confident going into these races, and I must say, it’s a nice change! I am fit, I am strong, and I am ready to prove to myself that I can ski fast.
