Time is seriously flying by. After a crazy two days of travel (I drove directly home after our LP races to drop off my car, slept for a few hours, and then flew out of BWI to Salt Lake City in the morning) we made it to Park City, Utah. Today is our first day of official training as we race on Monday & Tuesday!
It’s crazy to think that we’ll be racing again in 3 days, thus ending Team Trials. It feels like we just started! I won’t lie though, I’m excited for them to be over with because they do cause a lot of stress and anxiety, and I’m just ready to travel and compete already!
On to race results!
I placed 3rd in both Lake Placid races! Overall I’m pleased with the results, although I felt like I slid better during the training days vs the race days. But I’ll take the result and move forward. Providing everything continues to go according to plan, I should make the ICC circuit (also considered National Team) for the season.
We have slid 2 days so far since we got into town. The first night was pretty hectic since we got into our condo around 3pm and had to leave for the track by 5pm for our sliding session that evening. We were all pretty jet-lagged and exhausted and our first trips down the track were pretty sketchy, but it was good to get that first run out of the way.
Yesterday evening I enjoyed an awesome dinner with a big group of skeleton athletes. We went out for sushi to celebrate Meghan and Alex’s birthdays after our sliding session. It was an awesome night, filled with great food and lots of laughter!
Anyway, it’s off to get some sled work done to prep for our sliding session tonight. Thank you so much for all the continued love and support….it means a great deal to have so many people who have my back to cheer for me! Think fast thoughts!
