Alaska has been grand! I've seen some Williams Alums: Sam Sterling is in Anchorage, coaching the APU junior team along with Dylan Watts. Fiona Worcester is in and out, between finishing her master's in teaching and working in Anchorage. I was also privileged to meet one of the first women on the Williams ski team - Ellen Ellen Toll Blanchett, and her husband David Blanchett, who was also a ski team captain (their daughter Lindly is an APU junior).
I played really hard and skiied a bit when I first got here in the spring, but I've mostly been working hard lately! I am planning to race my hometown mountain this holiday weekend, but since my knee isn't 100 percent yet, I won't be racing the downhill portion. Still, looking forward to a 4 day weekend!
I've LOVED all your posts! Please keep those going! I will be taking over the weekly training posts, so plan to hear from me soon! Have a great (and SAFE!) holiday!
