Getting my momentum back
This morning I was feeling a little disheartened at how my quest was going but after today I am realising that I just have to keep after it. I once met a Vietnam vet who had seen a lot of atrocities and had survived through the war. I asked him what his secret was. He leaned forward, eyes red with wine, held my gaze and said ” never give up….never give up…..never give up…”
I guess I should listen to his words now and start linking a few big days. I was a little on the non motivated side this morning and looking up at the fingers I felt like the skiing wouldn’t be worth it. Dave joined me and gave me some energy and soon enough we were skiing through 30 fresh, skiing fast and aggressive. Three awesome runs later and I skied out to take my sister in law, Courtney, on her first backcountry experience. A talented skier I figured she would like the challenge of the backcountry. So we toured up 2100 feet and gave here her first b.c. turns. I think she loved them but needed more to really get into the rhythm.
No photos today but I will be back on it tommorrow. 10200 feet of decent skiing.
feels good to be blogging again, I promise non stop blogging till the end…
