Life, Injuries, Taxes...You know Adult things...as an athlete are never much fun. Along with balancing academics and future career options. So there always comes a time when some things have to change.
After spending a majority of my summer weighing and balancing the options of my athletic career, academic path and future. It's safe to say that I was defiantly faced with some hard challenges that really made me to step back a reevaluate how, and what I want to do with my self and how I wish to approach both my athletic and academic lifestyle.
I would like to give a large thank you of appreciation to my coaches, team, family, friends, and sponsors. Without their continued support, the many adventures of this little polar bear has been lucky enough to partake on throughout the years never would have been possible, without their time and dedication to helping me become the best I could be on and off the ski trails.
While I may be departing from the racing world for the time being, this does not mean that this is the end, just a small window of opportunity I want to pursue. I plan on staying fully involved in the nordic world and community, and after school has concluded I'm excited work towards reemerging myself back into the racing community.
