The holiday season kicked off with the first race of the season here in the Chamonix Valley on December 8th, a little later than the Alpine and Nordic races.
Being in a heavy training period I was not expecting super results, but pleased to be not far behind Gloriana Pellisier of the Italian team […]Continue Reading →
Thanksgiving is here! What kind of moving will you be doing? Some of you will be suiting up for your local Turkey Trot 5k, others may have an afternoon family football game. My dad has already made turns at Sugarloaf which has great early season skiing. Some US nordic skiers are in West Yellowstone doing […]Continue Reading →
As we turn back the clocks and try to savor a few hours of morning light, I reflect on the magnificent recent change of season in the Alps. Today, snow dusted our lawn and blanketed the hills. Temperatures dropped to -4 degrees. I am not sure I could live anywhere where there were no […]Continue Reading →

Going from sea level runs in Annapolis, Maryland around the United States Navel Academy in 100 degree heat and high humidity, and exploring the Appalachian Trail and histories roots, it was a breath of fresh, cooler air to step foot on the technical terrain of the Maine Appalachian Trail. Still, the sweat poured off me […]Continue Reading →
This year I chose not too dive right into the trail racing season, after the intense ski mountaineering season of 2012. I think last year I made that mistake. It is easy to do, when your fitness is strong but your muscles are not yet adapted to running. When your race season starts in […]Continue Reading →
Winning the World Cup Ski Mountaineering Sprint on April 14th, 2012 in Tromso, Norway is a dream come true for me. It is a culmination of reaching for something that felt somewhat unattainable, committing and believing. When I stepped on the airplane to Tromso Norway and flew all the way up north, across the […]Continue Reading →
