What a journey this has been, and to think that my first season is over is crazy and sad all at the same time. I would honestly do it all over. These past 8 months have been some of my favorite.
It is especially cool for me because I was living out some prayers that I had started praying about four years ago. I prayed to travel the world and not to be done with athletics, not knowing that I would get to travel and be competing in bobsled at the same time! God always out-does Himself.
The end of the season was special for me too. I ended the season with two gold medals at the last competition, one with each pilot. It was especially memorable for me because Lake Placid is the track that almost made me call it quits after my first slide down. So, to win two golds on the Lake Placid track just reminded me that anything God brings you to, He will bring you through.
So, what’s next?
I’ll continue to train and get ready for next season. I hope to make it up to Calgary once or twice to practice at the Ice House with some of my teammates this spring. Push Championships are held there and this is where they get your individual push times as well.
Oh yeah… my next goal?
Make the World Cup Team for the next three years.
Thanks for following my season! XOXO.
