Jumping Farther, Skiing Faster
GOTCHA! I am announcing my retirement from the dating game, not skiing silly. This past weekend was the most amazing weekend of my life. I finally got to say the words “I DO” to the love of my life in the pouring rain on top of a mountain. The event marks the end of a busy year of planning and preparation for the wedding, but in the end it was more than worth it, the wedding will easily will go down as the best night of my life! Nikki and I have decided to put off the honeymoon until after the season. As the season rapidly approaches I first have National Championships to focus on. It certainly would be career highlights to finally add that title to my results sheet, but it won’t come easy. After championships I will head to Europe with the team and partake in our final camp before the season starts. Of course after the Europe camp we will head to Ruka, Finland to kick off the season in the usual cold dark fashion.
With the exception of this past weekend my training has been relentless. I am pushing hard putting in the work excited for the season to start here soon. The leaves are in full swing and there is some big temperature drops on the horizon. Of course I am a dreamer, but I am dreaming of being on snow soon, can’t wait!
If your around Park City, UT this week and interested in checking out the new line of products from Madshus, join me at White Pine Touring, they will have the new models on display. The event will showcase the new technology in the ski, come see why these new innovations are so cool! A little hint… Be Empowered! Noah Hoffman will be there signing autographs and talking about the skis, poles, boots, etc. The Madshus Empowered Tour starts at 630 pm and lasts until 9 pm. Enter the raffle to win a pair of the new skis or a pair of UHM poles! I am looking forward to seeing you there!
Well that’s about all for now. Thanks for checking in, see you on snow soon!
