You know you spend a lot of time away from home when being back feels like a vacation. Even though I have been busy lately it’s just so nice to be sleeping in my own bed, catching up on things, and spending every second of my free time outside. Alaska has been absolutely beautiful this month. I feel like 99% of the time it has been sunny, clear, and really warm!
April was a month dedicated to resting. Being on the road all winter can be a little stressful on the mind and body. I had some results that made me feel like I was on cloud nine, with those results came some extremely disappointing races. All the excitement from the season though left me feeling depleted in March. The best way for me to prepare for my next season is to rest, refocus, and get amped.
I’m to the third stage already. I put in my time resting, which for me is not always easy. I had to turn off my race mind and do things that would give my body some time to heal. I spent some time in the backcountry, took a trip to Seattle to visit family and sponsors, and got a bunch of schoolwork done.
I think the best way to show what I did this spring is with some pictures so here we go:
Thanks for reading AND thank YOU for supporting me! I'm on my way to Bend, OR for my first U.S. Ski Team camp of the 2014-2015 season, lets get this thing going! Time to reach for the stars and let everyone know what the U.S. is made of.
