Step by step, on to Worlds

    The tone was different at the Under23/Junior Trials at Lappe last weekend, compared to my previous experiences competing and spectating at the event. It may have just been my perception of it though. Arriving at Trials after a mostly downhill rollercoaster of racing at US Nationals the week prior, I felt pretty relaxed.…

Racing from Yellowstone to Canmore

With two weekends of racing under my belt, I’m already three months ahead of schedule from last year – where I didn’t really get racing until mid-February. Needless to say, this season has started off on a much better foot than last year (pardon the pun). My first weekend of competitions (Nov 27-28) were in West Yellowstone,…

Fall vlog & skiing in TBay!

I’ve just gotten through a slew of assignments, labs, and midterms, and was able to take some time to put together a video for the fall. It’s mostly Frozen Thunder footage, as well as some miscellaneous triathlon and parking lot shenanigans. The best part though, or at least the part that was the most fun…

End summer training

Well, our Hayward training camp is a wrap. We drove back to Canada last Wednesday, stopping near Duluth for a roller ski on our way. The road we were planning to do the workout on was actually closed down for maintenance after some serious washout and debris damaged the road in a recent storm. Fortunately,…

TeamUp NDC Thunder Bay

It’s a little more lighthearted and captures the goofy-er side of our team. Even though we’re committed full-time athletes, it’s not seriousness all the time (or most of the time, for…

Bend is like

First training camp of the year is a wrap. No glacier though. This time I found myself in Bend, OR with most of NDC Thunder Bay, CNEPH, and the World Cup Team (so a pretty legit crew) for a dryland camp. The camp was designed by the WC team coaches for the National team athletes, so…

Boot Camp

The team wrapped up our annual “Boot Camp” last week. New team members, Julian and Sam, came up for the week of testing but returned home afterwards to finish their final high school semester, while Dave moved and stayed up, as he graduated last year. It was a busy week; we started things off with an…
