I left Anchorage on November 15th with Beitostølen, Norway as my first destination. I will be here for a little over a week training and competing in two distance races over the weekend before traveling to Finland for the first World Cup weekend. I stopped in Seattle for a night, which broke up the travel to Europe nicely. I got to run a fun loop up Tiger Mountain outside of Seattle with a friend before going to the airport.
Landing in Oslo I met up with the rest of the US Ski Team. This week the training has gone really well. It has snowed nearly every day making the trails a winter wonder land. I’ve been able to whip out some intervals and spend some valuable time testing new skis with my wax technician.
Thanks to the jet lag I have been awake each day by 6am. One perk to this wake up time is that I’ve had plenty of time to crush work and check off some lingering to-do list items.
Report so far: Two THUMBS-UP for sure!
