If you keep up with my blog, you are aware I have mono. Ew.
If you have ever had mono, you are aware that you aren't supposed to move (essentially) for several weeks in order to recover.

On Friday, it was giant slalom. I was only able to make it out for 2nd run because I had philosophy of religion in the morning. (I think I aced my reading quiz on chapters 5 and 6, in case you were wondering.) Side note: That class is actually getting far more interesting as we get into the actually philosophies. Now, back on track: The team did really well in the GS! I was so proud of all of them. Yes, I know I sound like a total mom, but it's true. I love to see that the work we put in pays off and I especially love to see the team happy at the end of the day.

Today was the slalom and the weather was beautiful. I spent all of first run at the top of the course with our assistant coach, Molly. I was cheering and taking pictures and having a grand old time working on my goggle tan. The whole team was up there at a few points and it was nice to see the team all together, having a good time. For those of you who don't know, my goal for the team this year was to be more like a family. I feel that we have attained that goal (including the occasional sibling rivalry) which I am totally stoked about.
The courses were more challenging today, so there wasn't quite the density of success like in the GS, however Carl Oscar did get a fabulous 17th place finish, which I believe is his best result so far on the college circuit. On the ladies side, Ashley got 29th which also fabulous considering how many people struggled on the second run course!
Yes, I am gushing about my team. We may not be UVM, but in my mind we are just as fabulous! To get the "official" ski team scoop, check out the blog, Facebook, and Twitter! I'm always posting new stuff like videos and results!
