After a long hiatus from the CGRP blog, I have returned! I’ve been inspired to do so by the awesomeness of realizing that I’m going to the Sochi Olympics along with two of my original Craftsbury Nordic Bill Koch League teammates. Its making me so proud for our little ski program!! (which is growing and growing…think how many future Olympians are among us!)
So with no further ado, I present to you a “blast from the past” of Craftsbury VIP’s. (Not just Ida, Susan and I…keep your eyes out for Lucas, Anna, and Emily among others!)
I have to say, the Craftsbury Juniors look pretty spiffy in their new green and black suits, but we felt really cool in those NEVT fleece vests that Susan’s mom made too. And now, to bring us back to the present…today I spent the morning skiing with Ida, Susan, and Liz at a beautiful place high in the Dolomites called Platzwiese. Susan and I are training in nearby Antholz, Italy for the next two weeks until we head to Sochi. Ida is training and then racing in Toblach, Italy, and then heading to Sochi right after the world cup in Toblach. Liz is training with the U-23 team in Toblach before heading to U-23 World Championships in Val Di Fiemme, Italy. And Pepa, and my parents were there too! It was a real Craftsbury Reunion in Italy.
I will also be documenting my Sochi adventures on my own blog (previously my art blog): hannahsartventure.blogspot.com
