Check that off the list

Well this week I finally caught the terrible cold that has been going around our team. I am pretty proud of myself though because my housemates have been sick for the last month and I held it off for almost the entire 5 week interval training block we were in....almost. I missed the last 3 intensity sessions of the block, but all in all, I still was able to get some good training in, I guess my body just couldn't take it anymore, so be it. Honestly, as the rain continued to fall and the air grew colder every day, I was quite content curled up in bed. However, I woke up yesterday, pulled up my shade and saw this:

I didn't think much of it, but our coach sent us an email suggesting we try skiing up higher in the mountains. So Sadie and did just that and found a little bit of snow, although a bit scratchy it was beautiful and sunny out and that feeling good feeling of gliding on the snow came back. With that, I have now officially skied every month of the year!!!!!!
