XCFeeds2010 US Nationals and Refined Blogging

FasterSkier FasterSkierDecember 31, 2009

After a two week break and some great skiing at home (despite some low snowfall), the MOD Squad has arrived fit and healthy in Anchorage, Alaska for the 2010 US National Championships and World Junior/U23/Canmore World Cup/Olympic Trials. Lots going on. We’re feeling super; this is a huge change from last year especially for Erik and I, as we arrived in Alaska a year ago with colds. Now we’re feeling super strong and snappy, ready to attack Saturday’s skate sprint, the first of the series.br /br /I’ve decided (with persuasion from our hardy readers) to be a bit more diligent on the blogging front, to expand the content to include tidbits of our lifestyle (which at times can be boring, then exciting, and everything in between), complete with pictures. Unfortunately I forgot to bring my camera cord up here this week but we should have a card reader by tomorrow and I’ll start uploading pictures. They are, after all, worth 1000 words. But for now I must ask you to be satisfied with mere words.br /br /Our flight up from Seattle was uneventful; after an easy drive from the Methow complete with a stop in Cashmere for our requisite Rusty burgers (some of the best drive-thru fare you could ever have; stop the next time you’re in town!), we got to the airport and connived the baggage check lady to take our very-slightly overweight items. Sadie, however, insisted on carrying on her huge foam roller and we were busy thinking of excuses for her insistence should she be questioned. But no problems there; I imagine the flight attendants thought it was a comfort object, something akin to a teddy bear for athletes.br /br /The flight itself was, as I say, uneventful. Scott and I sat together in an all-too-crowded row and quite near some mystery person who had clearly been getting plenty of starch in their diet, because the stank was overpowering. Breathing through my mouth for the majority of the trip I thought of clean sheets and fresh air and tried to survive.br /br /Anchorage isn’t too cold this year and there’s ample snow. We’ve had two days on course so far and things are looking great. I got my broken skate pole promptly replaced by Hallsey (Fischer racing director) and all is well. Scott has been out testing skis all morning so we’ll have some beta to go on for tomorrow’s pre-race ski picking. Tune in for more later, plus pictures!div class=”blogger-post-footer”img width=’1′ height=’1′ src=’https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/2910103639238326543-4302953373892571377?l=methowolympicdevelopment.blogspot.com’ alt=” //div
