It was another chilly one today. We had to be flexible as the race kept getting delayed and finally rescheduled for the afternoon. It’s always hard to warm-up, have to stop, go back home and then start over again and in the dark….I am happy I managed to deal with the punches and make the best of it. I felt really good or as good as one can racing in so many layers ;), but struggled with my tactics and confidence today. I am very happy to remain in the mix and to know my body is there, but have some to gain on the mental side. It was a good first weekend for me and really gave me a good starting point. I know where I am now and where I need to go to meet my goals later in the season. I am working with a new wax technician this season to add a little more chaos into the mix, but am feeling good about our start! I know we will be dealing with some subpar snow conditions so that will be the next hurdle to tackle next week!
