Now that I have 4 races under my belt (the 4th was Saturday at Crested Butte Mountain Resort), I am feeling strong and comfortable again on my skis. My excuse (keep in mind I don’t really believe in excuses); a late start due to the lack of snow. I know that I should want to write about feeling blah in a race just as easily as feeling good because its real, but I don’t. So even though I was 2nd in the race this weekend.... the same as 2nd at Jackson Hole, WY, I felt strong and had a good race. So here are a few pics from the last few weeks.
And on a parting note, it’s only going to get better from here!!!!
