A huge congratulations goes out to the team for some awesome racing on Saturday!! Way to go guys, the conditions weren't the greatest, but you persevered and you all rocked it!! Amazing work to each and everyone of you! Thank you to all the parents that drove, organized, waxed, fed, cheered, started, skied with, finished, loved and helped all around to make this weekend a great weekend. It's too bad about today, but as we've seen from this, there's no control over the weather and we will enjoy those awesome race skis that are all waxed and ready… on Tuesday instead!!! Thank you Red Deer Nordic for hosting a great race- the environment of the event was fantastic and Les, you rocked with your announcing- thank you!
Where is the time going?! I'm starting to panic that we're running out of ski season!!! This season feels shorter than usual, by about 3 months and I'm not sure where the time is going. There is only a few days of training left before a group of you are going to Alberta Winter Games, then a few days of training and group going to Westerns potentially, then a few days of training and a group going to the Alberta Youth Championships in Bragg Creek, then a few days of training and 1/2 of the team will be going to the Arctic Winter Games, then a few days of training and it'll be Sharkfest in Canmore, then a few more days of training that will include our swimsuit edition ski and the team windup party… As I said- WHERE IS THE TIME GOING?!!
So- as you see- we have lots of things to do in a little bit of time.
Please email me if you are interested in the Youth Championships, hearing more about them or planning on going- they are for Atom to Midget athletes only. These are an 'all inclusive' event in a very relaxed environment that focuses more on the fun side of racing and the snowball fights, then just the racing that we typically see in AB Cup races.
Tuesday: Classic skiing
Thursday: Skate skiing- maybe classic, depending on how much snow falls on Wednesday. Basically, be prepared for either!
Saturday: I'd like to skate and we will be splitting up into a few different groups so if there's any parents available please let me know! Bring a snack and a water bottle for this workout.
Keep the black-side down and the tips facing forward!! Woohoo to a great week of training!!
