So since my last personal update in Reno, my laptop was stolen and the road trip continued so only now, in Mid March, do I have a new place to type to you from!
So, last I said I would let you know what happened on a month per month basis. This post, I'll be starting with November.
My season began in Mid/Late November and included my first trip over to Europe for any reason. Flying from Montreal to Munich, we then drove to Pitztal, Austria. Being that this was my first time back on snow since lacerating my kidney, I was both nervous and excited to get on course. Most of our competition had already been on snow for about 5 weeks and had plenty of course time, while 6 out of our 9 days, including race days were weather days. I didn't finish well in either race, but the snow time and the exposure to Europe was extremely positive and meeting the competition I'll be facing in the future was very productive. Europe as a whole was very foreign as expected, and I wish I had more time to experience the culture while I was visiting. I had a day in Munich before flying home, but I got food poisoning the night before so I was in no shape to visit the city itself. I'm looking forward to my next visit immensely! After flying back home, it was late November, and I geared myself up for a month or so of training before our race season in North America officially kicked off.
