Wow. That was a fun race. It was great to mix it up today with juniors and masters alike for a little under 10k at Auburn Ski Club this morning. We actually had the entire Farm Team racing today. I’m glad I did it, even though I’m still getting over a cold. I figure either I can flush out the remaining sickness, or just get sick and then recover by the Birkie. Probably not the smartest Idea, but hey, I’ve gotta get all the racing I can in. The Birkie is in less than a week for Smokey (Michael) and me, and that’s a fever I’ve got for sure. Thanks to all the volunteers and race organizers; as usual, they did awesome job and were totally cheerful and friendly. Congrats to all the juniors on crushing the last qualifier and good luck to those off to SOHO for junior olympics.
Hi. I live in Reno, NV and just completed my masters degree in hydrology at the UNR graduate school. I competed in three NCAA skiing championships for Colby College from 2008 to 2011, where I majored in geology. Originally from Boise, Idaho, I’m pumped to be skiing and racing in the Sierras. I like mountain biking, running, eating salmon, walking on my hands, dumpster-diving, and playing guitar.
