When I woke up on race day morning with a headache, somewhat sore throat, and an achey body my first thought is to ignore it. So I ignored it, and I did what I would normally do on race day morning, drink coffee, eat breakfast, and ski… I did my warm up around the race course, but it was getting harder to ignore all the signals my body was trying to tell me. My body is fighting something, and it doesn’t need the stress on ski racing on top of that. It was huge bummer to not race today, but I think it was the smart thing to do… I want to fight off whatever bug is trying to get me down so that I can get back to health and race really fast next weekend in Canmore!!!
