We are one week into our training camp here in Park City. So far we have had some great workouts while trying to collaborate with all the groups in town. It feels like every skier in North America is here including the Canadian National team and clubs, Biathlon, APU, SMS, and many others. The past week has included some hard interval sessions at Soldier Hollow but also some really cool longer workouts like skiing un American Fork pass. We finished off the week yesterday with a 3.5 hour run and now I'm definitely ready for an off day.
On the 21st I joined over 400,000 people on the streets on New York City for the largest Climate Change protest in history. It was crazy to feel the energy of that many people at united for one cause. I was there representing Protect Our Winters and march with a group from the local NYC Patagonia stores. It was an incredibly tiring day taking the train back and forth from VT in one day and spending many hours on my feet but it felt totally worth it. WE hope the UN has heard us loud and clear.
100k Ski-A-Thon with the SMS-T2 team was a huge success. We finished the epic workout in 5:45 and as always enjoyed some team bonding along the way. A huge THANK YOU to all the sponsors including Jeff Videtto Bennington Physical Therapy, Don Wassick and Wassick Tire Service, Loren Peck DDS, and Bob Bergman and the West Mountain Animal Hospital.
