I desire to be the best skier I can be.. And that is just the beginning..
I desire to be the best person I can be.. And that is a change..
I desire to be a good memory to everyone that meets me.. And that is hard to imagine..
I desire to be remembered.. And that is something I'm willing to fight for..
I desire someone to read this and know all this before-hand.. And that is up to them..

As the last season ended with three weeks of non stop racing from Wyoming all the way to California it was time for me to take a vacation and plan my next move. I asked around to see where would be a good place to resume my training for the start of my second season and get prepared for the possibility of going to Sochi, and in the mix Maine Winter Sports arose victoriously.
Why Maine? There's many reasons but the main reason that made sense to me was the opportunity to belong somewhere in the Nordic world where all my questions can be answered and I could train without the question of "am I doing this right?", which last season I found myself asking many times.
Well, after literally a week worth of driving across the country I finally have arrived to this very new land that they call upper Maine. I arrived and I was very welcomed by my new teammates to the famous farm house in Caribou, I put my stuff down in the room that they had recently painted prior to my arrival and I proceeded to feel comfortable. The very next day I met all my new coaches and ran a very "hello!! Here's Training!!" 5k race in downtown Caribou.
Now it's been almost a week since I have been here and I'm still getting used to the mechanics of it all but I can already tell its going to be a very hard and fun summer, and I'm totally ready and excited for all of it.
