Kids Again!

This past weekend has been great! The weather is fantastic and my training has been going great. My training groups are meeting again and the intensity is rising! Winter isn't too far away and I can hardly wait to get back on snow.

Brian has been down spending time with me again and he is always great at planning large group training sessions. This past week we had seven skiers together 5 men and 2 women working on our sprinting! This was the first workout for pure speed I had done so I was a little rusty at first but picked up the pace as the workout progressed.

After the workout the "Big Kids" got together and payed on the awesome playground at French Park where we met earlier in the morning. It's hard to resist the incredible rope cages and slides.

I also had an opportunity to meet with other Minnesotan Olympians at the Hard Rock Cafe in downtown Minneapolis. It was awesome to meet athletes from different sports and different Olympic Games. We were gathering to start a social network in which all Olympic athletes from Minnesota could gather and share their past experiences and current life stories. Although I am not originally from Minnesota I am honored to be recognized with this group.
