Here we are halfway through summer training out in Stratton Mountain, Vermont with the T2 team, and with 1 month down and 1 month to go before I head up to NMU, here’s an update on life out east.
Training has been going very well and the hours have been stacking up and I’ve been feeling stronger and most importantly, staying healthy. My technique is coming along thanks to Coach O’ Brien’s (Cooooach Herb as we like to call him à la Herb Brooks from Miracle) work and impressive video compilations he shoots whether he’s driving the van, biking, or rollerskiing alongside. Living and training alongside Olympians and future Olympians has been a great experience especially when you realize that they aren’t as intimidating as you would think (although Simi is pretty big) but rather welcoming and friendly people who just train really hard and have a passion for skiing.
Getting more and more stoked to head up to NMU and start training and school with the guys up in Marquette but until then, here are some pictures of the past month!
A big thank you to my parents for all the support you have given me to chase the dream out here to Stratton, it’s been such a blessing. Hope everyone’s summer training is going well!
