Race Season in Color

Here is a running collection of photos from the first two months of racing. So far I’ve raced in three states and it has proven to be a productive start.      

Perfect Conditions

This morning I went for an excellent skate ski on the Birkie trail north from Mosquito Brook. The conditions were absolutely perfect and it got me excited for the months of March and April when the days are getting longer and warmer and the skiing is at its sweetest. On days like this I always … Continue reading

The roller coaster that is ski racing!

The last three weeks has been a roller coaster.  I’ve had a few good races and a few bad races. I’ve had days where training has felt great and days where I’ve slept 16 hours. I’ve been here before and fortunately I’m learning from my previous mistakes. Since the Birkie nine days ago I have … Continue reading

Welcome to Milwaukee

After a great altitude camp in Telluride, Karl Nygren and I packed up the car and headed back to the Midwest. Fortunately, the two day drive was uneventful and we both made it to our respective destinations safely. For me, it was Milwaukee, to meet my girlfriend in her new home. It was my first … Continue reading
