Park City, Utah
December 3, 2017
The rollercoaster ride: not just the actual slides but the highs and lows of being in athletics.
From Whistlers crash, I was fortunate to have better outcomes in Calgary. I took a 4th place with Nicole Vogt and a gold with Kristi Koplin. Standing on the podium while they play the winning team’s national anthem makes me stare straight forward and not look around because I would start crying.
Not only am I extremely honored, and feel under qualified to be representing the USA, but I am overwhelmed with the way God has answered my prayers. For years I didn’t think I was done with athletics, but didn’t know what to do. I didn’t even have a gym membership and I definitely didn’t have bobsled on the radar. One by one, and years of waiting (literally 4), doors started to open.
Calgary was a high moment, and then Park City was a low. North American brakeman did not get to compete because the World Cup team was there. It was tough to not get a chance to compete but that is just how works. The World Cup brakeman are obviously on the World Cup for a reason, and God already knew they were going to race anyway :)
Off to Europe! Heading to the track in La Plagne, France. We will have race-offs when we get there to see who will race. Either way, I am excited for this adventure. I’ll celebrate my 28th birthday and 2017 Christmas in Europe.
You could’ve given me 3 million guesses last year on where I would be in a year, this wouldn’t have made the list.
Thanks for the support. XOXO.
