Jari Kirkland Checks In On Her First Four Races....

So it’s not been 3 weeks since I did my first SkiMo race and I finally have something to talk about.  Which means that even though I was 2nd at SkiMo Nationals in Jackson I didn’t really have much to say.  At that point I had only been on my skis a few times. 

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!!!!
