Last? First? I’m not sure…

Hi everybody!

I hope you all had a great break, and that you are enjoying the weather wherever you might be. I know I am!

As you know, our first week back has come and gone. It’s been good to get back into the swing of things, even if I would rather be skiing every day!

This past week, we started road biking as well, which I’m psyched about. Really looking forward to spending some quality time with this amazing team, and putting in some miles!

On wednesday, we had enough time to go on a longer ride. Max Southam ’15, Kyler Walker ’15, Yacht Kitimoon ’13 and I all headed out on a 50 miler. At about mile 35, my legs were burning, and I was “bonking out” (ran out of food energy in my body. Legs stop working.). Yacht also seemed to be feeling the pain. We got to my house and stopped for sandwiches, and then headed slowly back to campus. It was on this 5 mile stretch that I learned it was Yacht’s first road ride! I am wicked impressed at his power to push through barriers!

Over the weekend, I had the opportunity to forerun some FIS ski events, and close out my season. I had a great day, with some awesome conditions, some fun (and challenging) courses, and I got to see some great skiers to boot. It was a fitting end to my season, and I’m very sad to be hanging up the skis until November.

Anyways, I can’t wait to post about other exciting happenings, looks like it’s gonna get warm this week!

 

Have a great, amazing, incredible week!

-John
