Winter is approaching quickly and I figure that it is time for a few updates:
First, I am excited to say that I will be representing Coffman Engineers again for the coming season. Stay tuned for some flashy new apparel. Coffman is both my employer and my current headgear sponsor and is one of the big reasons that I returned to Alaska following graduation at UVM. I can honestly say that I don’t know if I would still be chasing skiing dreams without their support.
Second, I am pleased to announce that I am a Girdwood 2020 Go for the Gold recipient. Girdwood is an amazing small community south of Anchorage that in many ways is the playground for many of the Anchoragites (to the annoyance of some Girdwedians I suspect). Girdwood has amazing running trails (crow pass and winter creek), the best alpine resort in AK (Alyeska), great nordic trails (I say that even after a bad injury there), and has managed to come together as a community to help support many Alaskan athletes Olympic dreams.
Third, I have decided that I am going to start a mini-series on this blog with frequently asked questions (or at least what I see as frequently asked questions.) Feel free to comment if you would like to ask something. Most of all, this is a way for me to inform some readers and generate some content when the weather is marginal or I just don’t have anything I feel is exciting report. Stay tuned for the first edition coming soon.
In the mean time, training continues. Most of Anchorage’s snow has melted so we are double poling around on ice, breaking out the cleats for running, or finding other activities to stay in shape and build race fitness for the rapidly approaching season.
