Lake Placid was going to be a short but packed trip for me. I arrived to my cabin for the weekend late on Thursday night and by Friday morning I was up early and at the Olympic Training Center for our first workout! Below are a number of photos ranging from My trip back East to our Sale Event at Hoigaards Ski Shop! We have been getting a lot done and as the season approaches it feels good start focusing on just training, racing and recovering.
I know I have said this a million times but...training, traveling and sharing the experience of trying to make an Olympic Team with your husband has been the best time of my life! Although we can be tired, dirty, hungry, busy, stressed, etc... all at the same time, we wouldn't trade this life for anything different! Even if we were millionaires we would live in our same home, on our same block, work with kids in the neighborhood and get them out exercising and of course XC Ski everyday we could!
