My season officially begins!!!!

It has been 188 days since I had reconstructive ACL surgery. Tomorrow I will be competing in the Telemark World Cups in Steamboat Colorado. This was the goal…to get back to racing within 6 months to be ready for the World Cups. There has been a ton of hours spent rehabbing and hitting the gym and tomorrow we get to put everything to the test.
This past week has been awesome being able to train gates everyday with standout coaches. Makes a big difference when you have a coach observing every run you take with feedback waiting for ya for at the top of the next run. Also too, watching my teammates rip as well is a great visual aid for me as well. With that being said, it’s been a great week of training in Steamboat. But…now its time to race. Today was an official training day for the World Cup…. it was cool for to reconnect with some of the familiar faces from other other Countries that I recognized. It was not cool, to see how good some of these cats where though. The Germans, Swiss, and Norwegians know how to ski.
Who cares right….time to ski.. I’m excited and nervous at the same time. Nervous in the fact that I have knee that needs to withstand the World Cup conditions, and excited to be competing at the highest level tomorrow.
