A Quick Break

I'm now back in Lake Placid for a brief interlude between camps. With a successful October camp behind us, the Development Team will be heading to Canmore, Alberta (near Calgary) in a week. There, we will train for a couple weeks before the first NorAm (North American Cup) races. After Canmore, we'll be off to West Yellowstone, Montana for the second set of NorAm's. Then home for Christmas break. The two sets of races will determine who will go to Europe in January to compete on the Europa Cup circuit. So until then, we'll all be working extra hard.

Being home the last week was great. It was fun to see some friends and spend time with my family. I'm looking forward to being home again for Christmas, but before then, there's still work to do!

The stray cat that adopted us for the day while we were raking leaves. He was so sweet that he must have belonged to someone, so the neighbors took him in until he's claimed.

Halloween! A Greek goddess and a Trojan warrior...or something like that. We had a great night giving out candy and checking out the cool costumes.
