Last Wednesday…

Last Wednesday Chris and I went riding up at Stevens Pass. It was a hoot and a half. The mountain was closed but the stars and moon were out so we hiked the Brooks and up into the snow park. It gave us the much need time to practice rail riding. Were both novices on rails, he boards & I ski, and never had the opportunity to stay parked on a rail. By 11:30 Chris could ride up the turn sideways and ride the full rail, he was doing a flat box rail, and I could almost ride a kinked box rail sideways but I kept on biting it at the very end, my exists where shaky.

 

It was so much fun. Chris brought his video camera so we took some evening footage of our adventure. That is the third time this year we have had to hiked for turns. Two weeks ago we actually paid to go skiing and I’ll tell you what, the lifts were nice to ride J. Now I am looking forward to the end of the month, WHISTLER BLACKCOMB or Bust!!

 

Another college buddy and all his friends that are heading up there and I got bum in and sleep on the floor of the cabin.. The cabin is very nice, www.OurWhistlerRetreat.com, and should have enough room for me to crawl up by the fire place 😛 It also has a hot tub which looks out to Whistler so maybe I can meet some hottie!! I am stoked because Blackcomb keeps the halfpipe lit up so it can be road all night. It is in the Nintendo Terrain Park which is one of the best in the world. Can’t wait to test myself.

 

“Go Big or Go Home”

 

This training is going to pay off and my workout still remains closely to what I posted awhile back. The 5 day workout is intense but when worth it.

 

If you haven’t seen it yet go to www.JoinBode.com. That is Bode Miller’s website and boy-o-boy is it cool. I would like to have a website like that. I think it was done in flash and has tons of videos, Bode on training, Bode on motivation, Bode on Boozing and so many more. I have been through most of the videos but there is some other stuff I have yet to try out. He has my support for all his events, so does the rest of Team U.S.A., and I can’t wait to see his aggressive, on the F***ing edge style of skiing.

 

Complete Coverage the 2006 Winter Olympics

 

These Olympics is there is much to watch and look for. There is a new scoring system for ice skating due to the scandal that arose in Salt Lake. The Canadian team did a phenomenal performance but for how great it was they were awarded second place. That spurred a probe in the judging and the scandal was exposed. After that the Canadian team were awarded a gold and the Russian team, who the scandal favored, was allowed to keep theirs. The new scoring system was designed to give more weight to other parts of the routine instead of a few fundamentals allowing skaters that do have errors the opportunity to still be able to score in the medals. That Canadian Team will not be competing in Turino.

 

Apollo Ohno is an athlete to watch in the speed skating events along with many others. It is amazing how fast those guys and gals can go with such grace and power. The Winter Olympics is so much fun to watch and in 2010 it is Whistler!! It is only 4 hours from my house J I will so be going to watch you can count on it.

 

Sleeping in a car, scrounging money for tickets and eating out of gut trucks I will have the time of my life. So if you have heard already “Go Big or Go Home”. Hahah I love saying that. Anyhoo Take care and
