How time flies! Three weeks of racing already done in the new year, and World Champs just a week away! Things started out great for me in 2013, with three top-40s and two clean races! To top it off, we had our best relay result of the season (10th place) in Antholz. It was the perfect way to end the trimester and head into World Champs.
Pretty happy with our 10th place relay finish!
Now, we've been training and enjoying great food and sun in Antholz, Italy as we prepare for World Champs in Nove Mesto, Czech Republic. The first race starts a week from today (Mixed Relay on Feb. 7). I'm looking forward to getting to Czech and getting back to racing!

Shadows only happen when it's sunny! Beautiful ski at Platzwiese, Italy.
Post-ski coffe and conversation in the sunny Dolomites...life is good!
I am a Boise, Idaho native currently living and training at both the Olympic Training Center in Lake Placid, New York and in Anchorage, Alaska. I graduated from Dartmouth College in June 2007 and moved to Lake Placid to begin training as a member of the US Biathlon Team. I made my first Olympic Team in 2010, and placed a season's best 34th in the Individual race. In the 2010-2011 season, I finished a personal-best 14th in the Presque Isle, Maine World Cup and ended the season ranked 34th in the world. In the 2011-2012 season, I had another top finish with a 15th place in the World Cup Sprint in Kontiolahti, Finland. I have been a member of the US World Championship Team for the past 3 years, and as one of the top US women, will again compete on the World Cup circuit in 2013-2014. This year, my goal is to qualify for the Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia which will take place in February 2014.
