No, not that Adams Family. The Utah Adams. They’re my hosts during my time here in Park City and I couldn’t have asked for a better family to stay with during the training camp. Luke and Lindsey both ski for the local junior club in Park City and Greg and Toni get out practically everyday for a Nordic ski on the trails or Tele-ski on the mountain.
I could go on-and-on about how cool they are, but these two simple facts alone sum up how at home this Midwesterner feels at the Adams:
1. They’re all Packer fans. Sweet! They’ve never lived in Wisconsin, but Greg and Luke have been to several games at Lambeau. America’s Team? I’d say so.
2. The salmon they fixed on the grill tonight sure hit the spot and is right up there with an Angry Minnow Friday Night Fish Fry. I think this is probably the best pre-race meal imaginable and every meal has been this good.
Although the weekend is finally here, it’s going to be busy around the Adams. Luke & Lindsey are off to take their SAT’s tomorrow morning (sure glad I’m past that!), Greg is racing in the local Wasatch Citizens Series ski race at Mountain Dell, and I’m headed to Soldier Hollow to compete in the Utah Invite collegiate ski race–a 20km mass start skate. As a guest in the event, I get to start in the back of the field for the mass start. Maybe this will teach me to not go out so hard at the beginning of ski races!
