|Happy Family at the Finish!|
This was the first sprint race I have ever won on the Super Tour circuit. I have won the qualifier in the past but have never finished above 2nd in a final. It was a great feeling and a huge confidence boost before my distance race the next day.
I am much stronger in the distance events (aka the American Birkebeiner) than the sprints which made the sprint victory so awesome. The 10K skate was incredible for me and my wax techs nailed the wax (which is a huge factor in ski racing). The BEST part of the day was Brian getting 2nd! He raced so well and his result was a huge step towards the Olympics for him :) Team Gregg is in good spirits as we go separate ways for this next weekend!

The truth is I am not very good at being sick. I still try to take care of everything I usually do (minus the training) when I should be sleeping in bed. So with this last sentence I will sign off and add some fun photos from the week here in West Yellowstone.
