Im sure I don’t need to say this…. But…..

I would like to say thank you to everyone that made this trip possible for the entire Far West Junior National team! THis has been an amazing try and many great memories will come from this arctic adventure! Not only was there great racing, but great… well…… everything! It was amazing! I’m sure I speak for most of the team, or should I say all! THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!!! And not just too the parents. To the coaches who toiled over our skis, and the race crews at Auburn ski club who worked hard to pull off our qualifying races!

Well its about -9 degrees Fahrenheit right now at 08:36 on Thursday morning. This should be an interesting day. This is going to be an interesting day.
Our sprint course is going to be really fun yet challenging. Making the heats this year will be hard and placing high will be even harder. The snow yesterday had very little glide and today I expect it will have even less. This is when tempo and speed over rule power and glide. But all this doesn’t mean we can’t go fast! That would defeat the purpose of racing!

Along with this I would like to thank my parents, my friends, my family, and everyone else that made this incredible journey available to me! It has been amazing and I hope that in two years you’ll all be able to see Far West race on their home turf!

FAR WEST FAR BEST!!!!!!

I just LOVE packing!

I think the most stressful part of this trip is the packing! Your struggling to remember if your forgetting anything, we surely can’t turn around and get it. Skis, check. Boots, check. Poles, check. Race suit, check. Gloves, hats, socks, headbands, buffs, check. I hope everything is getting into this bag. Looks like the Xbox will be staying though :( Oh well. Surely, this won’t really be the most stressful part of the trip. Will it?

Best Racing Experience:
My best racing experience would be the Super Junior National Qualifier sprints at Soldier Hollow this year! I placed 6th overall! Nearly killed myself to do it! Best day so far!
If you could have one superhero power, what would it be?
If I could have one super power, it would be to control time and space.
What is something most people can do that you cannot?
I can’t say that I resemble my parents or any of my relatives at all, mostly because I’m Asian and they aren’t.
