      April 16, 2013

       Wow! It seems to me that the winter has gone by so fast. The past 5 months present themselves in my mind like a big whirl of awesome racing, fun Euro adventures with my teammates, some of the best family and friends time I have had in a while and quite possibly the most fun I have ever had in my life. It really was that good!

      I finished the season with many new personal bests that I was so thrilled achieve. I finished 4th in an individual World Cup race in Czech, a mere centimeter off the podium. Then Peri and I won a bronze medal on the next year’s Olympic trails in Sochi. As the season was winding down, I also got a new personal best sprint qualification (4th), won a couple of gold medals at the Canadian Championships and finished the season ranked 17th sprinter overall on the World Cup. As I learn to believe more and more in what I’m capable of once I set my mind on a goal and work hard towards it, it’s truly exciting to see how much I can accomplish in the next season, the year of Sochi Olympics...
