It has been a lot of fun racing this second half of the season. A lot of travel and some exciting ups and downs. Going back to February, after NCAA Central Regionals, I flew directly to Halifax for the Canada Winter Games. This meant 6 races in a mere 8 days and although I tried my best, I could not stay healthy. I had some a few good results though, I ended up 4th overall on the NCAA Central circuit with some decent finishes at Regionals and at Canada Games, I got my sprint groove back and finished 14th on the day with a 9th in the qualifier which was a good boost.

As of now, I am quite exhausted from the Buckwheat Ski Classic 50k. This year I managed to win it in a sprint finish with David Greer. It is a special race with some legendary personalities and I was happy I could claw my way back to the lead pack after being dropped at about 40k. Since I am graduating this semester, I was allowed by the NCAA to accept the $500 prize. Not bad!
Now is the time for some relaxation and catching up with friends as well as some unbeatable spring skiing. I will keep you updated as I head into an intense training summer here in Canada.
