Skating sprints today, the course is about 1.1km, and it suits me fairly well. Qualifying round felt good, I was relaxed and smooth, but didn't feel like I had pushed any limits physiologically. I end up in 29th, which puts me in a heat with Devon, Shane and Skeets Morel. I had a good start and ended up third in line behind Devon and Skeets. On the second and last uphill I chose the outside lane to try and move up to second, but it was a bad choice and I ended up fourth. When it came down to the last straight away, I had no juice left to accelerate, so ended up last. One of the closest round one heats, if you ask me.

Wow, the first race is over. Things went well, although I wasn't the most comfortable with my technique, and I lacked a good finishing kick. I think these will come quickly as I race more.

Hello Everyone,
I am currently in Silver Star, B.C. for my first races of the year. The snow is great here and I'm looking forward to the first race on Thursday, the 15km classic.
