Girl's start, quarterfinals (I am in blue with white boots)
Today I finished second in the prelim (by .1 second to my teammate Sadie Bjornsen!) and fourth overall at the end of the day. I was skiing well in the final, leading in the middle of the race. Then, on the last downhill I slipped once (despite good skis) and a couple of us had a bit of a hangup allowing Perianne Jones to ski away from us. After that, I tanked on the double pole finish. Oh well, that's sprint racing and I went for it.

Also, I found this really sweet vimeo video tour of the course in case you're interested in seeing what we skied today. Hats off to Sovereign, the race committee, and the trail designer. Everyone loved the course. Thanks to Geoffrey Richards for making and posting this video.

Also, here is a video my teammate Brent Knight made.... for some reason I can't find the code to embede it but go to his blog to see it anyways! It's sweet:
That's it for now. I'm going to BED!
