As the days counted down to the first races in West Yellowstone, I could feel it slithering into my system. Ah. Here it comes again. We all have it. No matter how long in the field you’ve been fighting, those race nerves hit you like a donkey getting branded...

Looking back, I never told any Appalachian trail stories as was planned. I am going to share a blog entry of my buddy Voodoo, who thru-hiked the whole thing this summer. We hiked together for about a month. You can guess which trail name is mine. And PS, I...

Intermission Road Trip

After World Cups in Oslo, I had to figure out a way to get to Valdidentro Italy. I was going to take a few trains, but that would have taken multiple days, multiple dollars, and I have multiple bags. The OPA crew was driving a nice 10 hours from...

Drammen World Cup

Drammen World Cup

by Jennie

Your harshest critic should be yourself. And most times, that’s a hard enough battle. When you are not in someone else’s shoes, judgment comes easy. Now that I am racing here vs across the ocean, sitting at my computer watching FIS online, it is evident that the details here...
