Well, I'm well into my season now, at least half way. I've had 18 starts so far, 13 of which are FIS. I scored at a few of the FIS races, dropping my slalom, GS, and super-g points all down to around 115. That's a significant improvement for my GS and super-g points last year, which were in the 130 and 140 range. I'm planning on continuing that path and scoring in the tech events at Snow King, Wyoming this upcoming Thursday-Sunday. I had a really tough time at this race last year, so I'm hoping to get some redemption!
Besides constant training and racing, I've been staying (too) busy with school. I took on 3 online courses this semester, along with 3 classes actually in the high school, which will soon turn into 4 next quarter. In short, I've been swamped with homework and haven't had too much time to make ski videos or take pictures, although I landed one in the "shot of the day" of Whitefish's website. The picture is of my friend Nick, my ski buddy when I'm not training.
I should also mention that I was recently featured in a profile article in the local newspaper. I think Matt Baldwin did a really good job keeping the facts straight and representing who I am accurately. Here's the link to the article: http://www.flatheadnewsgroup.com/whitefishpilot/article_49594d82-6b07-11e2-8cbc-0019bb2963f4.html
Thanks for reading my blog! More posts to come--homework permitting...
