Journal, January 23rd:

The World Junior Champs trip has kicked off in Canmore, Alberta, with three days of awesome skiing up at Mt Shark, the exact altitude of Soldier Hollow where will we race in a mere weeks time! There is some fun single track classic, good for easy zone1 skiing, plenty of technical downhills and an abundance of great training partners.

We received our new Team Canada kit and are loving wearing the red, white and black. Everyone is looking good! My National Team Development Centre (NTDC) teammates and I decided to make pompoms as an addition to one of the hats as shown in one of the pictures, right now most of the team wants one! Good thing we made 23!

Looking forward to a rest day tomorrow, at least for me, and doing some active recovery like rolling and dynamic stretching. Time to show the rest of the xc ski world what Canada can do!
