A month of racing in Europe, 12 races including 2 world cups, a grand course race and a world championship my body's systems have been tested. At times I ponder my sanity "why would I inflict this upon myself" "this is fundamentally crazy" but then the light shines in and I realize it just fits. My soul yearns for the challenge of pushing harder and longer and these are the perfect playing grounds. Its a special place set up by organizers and military where everyone inadvertently creates an opportunity to test and push there limit.

For me Ski mountaineering remains a challenge to reach my potential and a vehicle for moving fast and efficient in the mountains. The placing at races and more importantly time off the leaders gives a gauge to my progress.
