An Afternoon with Kikkan Randall: Cross Country Olympic Gold Medalist

Whenever I make a trip to the East coast, specifically the Northeast I try to pack in as much as I can.  This recent trip was no different with stop is in New York City, Vermont, Quebec City and Maine.  It’s busy days but somehow I come out more energized than when I arrived.

When I get to see posts like this one it just reaffirms how worth it it all is.  Thank you Sleepy Hollow and Skirack for the great visit and Marissa for the kind words…

On Wednesday, March 20, 2019, Skirack and theSleepy Hollow Inn Bike and Ski Center had the honor of hosting one of the most inspirational and influential nordic skiers of our time. It was a perfect, blue bird day. The snow was soft and the sun was shining when I arrived at Sleepy Hollow to set up for what promised to be an exciting event. People were already materializing with an hour still to go before the start. You could feel the anticipation building as everyone eagerly waited for the Fischer SUV to appear. I busied myself setting up tables and erecting wind blades that proudly proclaimed Fischer and One Way. When next I looked out the window of the barn, there it was, shining black in the sun, and as I scanned the scene I finally spotted her: Kikkan Randall, winningest American Nordic Skier, Olympic Gold Medalist and determined cancer fighter.
