The Arrival

We made it to Solider Hollow and are ready to rock the race courses! Today the team went on an easy ski with some intervals and previewed the sprint course. The classic sprint is tomorrow and we are all excited. The course is difficult with some short, steep up hills and some speedy down hills. Almost all of us raced this course in January for the Super JOQ so we know it well. However, any venue seems completely different when 500 of the US’s best juniors are there. I can sense some pre-race nerves from myself and everyone else. I know that this just means we all care and want to do well. This isn’t easy competition by any means, but by racing here, we are only making ourselves faster. FAR WEST FAR BEST!!
