Congrats to Tim! Still More Waiting For Me….

Posted on

Hi Everyone,

Yesterday was a great day for U.S. Biathlon in the first men’s race of the World Cup Season!  Tim had a great race and got on the podium for the first time in his career, placing 2nd, just behind Norway’s Emil Svendson.  Congrats to Tim and all the rest of our staff who have worked so hard over the last few years to get us in a position to vie for a podium.

For me, it has been a challenging fall given how well training went up until October.  I feel that, generally, my immune system is fairly strong and I don’t usually get sick that often.  Yet, at the end of October, I came down with a bad cold, then a few weeks ago I got the flu.  After recovering and having a good two weeks of training in Sweden, I again find myself fighting another, albeit milder cold.  I chose to sit out the 20km yesterday hoping that it would allow me to recover for the next race on Saturday.  I have my fingers crossed and I’m hoping to be ready to race then.  I’ll head out for some easy training this afternoon and see how it goes.  I’ll keep ya’ll posted on the progress.

    Plenty of season ahead, make it count when you’re good to go! Isn’t there a Canuck on the dance card this winter?
