I’m sitting here in my house, looking back on the years. Starting Nordic in 7th grade, doing okay not really caring where I placed, to 8th grade where I finished 4th in my second race. I didn’t know about nordic racing or Junior Nationals or Far West. I had the teenager disease, I thought that the nordic world was just me and my team, duh. I raced through the year and was always wondering how Sam Zabell always won. Then I heard about Sugar Bowl Academy, and though “Wow that would be really cool to go there” and then discarded the thought. I never thought that I would end up here, going to Sugar Bowl, joining Far West, qualifying for the JNs, and now I am here, GOING TO JNS. Look out the rest of the nordic world. We’re coming…….FAR WEST, FAR BEST!!!!!!!
