I got the word after the race today that I am heading to World Champs! They aren’t for a month so I am off to Stowe, VT to train for the next few weeks before I head over. Annie and Hazel are heading back there later this week so it will be good to see them for a while. divbr //divdivMy first sprint relay was a blast. I was able to hang in with the leaders for 2.5 of 3 laps when they made a big acceleration that I didn’t have left in me. It was a sweet chance to see how fast they really go and have three laps to race with those guys. I feel like I have learned a lot both yesterday and today about tactics and the level that the regular World Cup’ers ski at. I’ve been at that level before and every time I am I learn quite a lot. Now there’s another chance next month. /divdivbr //divdivSo now a couple days off to travel back to VT. Then hit the training hard for a bit and see if I can’t put together a good peak. br /divbr //divdivbr //div/divdiv class=”blogger-post-footer”img width=’1′ height=’1′ src=’’ alt=” //div
