2009-2010 coming to a close...

Sunday marked the official end of my biathlon competition season with the Mass Start and the first day of spring with a sunburnt face. I was really glad to be here for US Nationals and to get a chance to race some low key races on a former "hometown" course. After a great week of training at home and a solid lead into the race week I really enjoyed the first race. I gave my self the best chance of putting together a good race series, but the length of the race season, the heights of the Olympics and the lows of poor performances have really tested my ardor for competition this season. Coming back to the County was the right place to be to rekindle my enjoyment for racing and ending the season on a good note. Despite some tough races this week, it was in those trying moments that I found that there is still a lot of work left to be done. After some fun xc races this week and a healthy spring break, I will get another chance to pick back up where I have left off.
