What Moves You?
"Life is either a daring adventure or nothing."
- Hellen Keller
The Dog Days of Summer are coming...and I'm ready to
cool off and ski again!
The more time I workout out at home at Lake Tahoe in these hot summer days, the more time I spend thinking about skiing. After three months off snow, I’m getting hungry to click into my skis again on cool European glaciers -- the master plan!
In August I’ll be on-snow in Switzerland dialing in my fundamentals and preparing my equipment set-up for this upcoming season. I’ll train in Saas-Fee, Switzerland on a glacier and then I’ll head north to Lithuania to ski on an indoor, watered ski hill (if you can imagine skiing on an ice rink, that’s what it feels like).
I had the opportunity to enhance my physical training block in Slovenia where I could be in the mountains while enjoying my family and friends. Now I’m making the best of my time at home, finishing another college class, organizing my ski-related business, working out at the gym and track and jumping in The Lake!
It's Olympic kick off time - The 2022 Winter Olympics are now only six months away! My first World Cup race, which is one of seven Olympic qualifiers, is in Levi, Finland: mark your calendars for Nov. 21st! This new ski season has launched, yet there is plenty of work to be done between now and race time.
I hope everyone is enjoying the gifts of summer as we soak up the feeling of newfound freedoms.
Stay healthy and stay happy!
