This morning I had a tough 15k mass start. I ended up visiting the penalty 13 times, so that is almost 2k extra added to my race;-( I had a very poor end result for the day, but I’m actually excited that I felt great racing and was able to push hard on the up hills and the flats. My next biathlon races are the North American Championships Mid-January in Jerico, VT so I have work to do the next few weeks to fix my shooting errors.
Post race my father and I made the trip from Grand Rapids to the big city of Duluth for some tourist action. First we visited the shores of Lake Superior for a shore hike on the beautiful lake. After our hike we stumbled upon a Holliday light show called Bentleyville. The exhibition included lights, ice-skating, popcorn, hot chocolate, coffee, and cookies. Classic Mid-west entertainment it really turned on my Holiday energy.
Happy Holidays Everyone!
