A Favorite Adventure

Hello from Alaska!
The team is on our way to Austria and Switzerland to train for what could be the largest season of our careers. Throughout the summer and leading into Pyeong Chang 2018. (The Next Winter Olympics and Paralympics) There has been much publication for the next few months. Ranging from photo shoots, to video shoots and even radio or television show interviews. All in preparation for another year representing our country on the global stage. But not just our country, our story, our legacy and even our sponsors. A chance to be placed in the spotlight for the rest of the world and hopefully make a positive influence. Pursuing our dream and show casing the positive human spirit that is held with the Paralympics. We all are holding ourselves to the highest of competitive standards. When chasing our dream, to be the best, we need to prepare as the best. With rigorous physical summer training coming to a close we are looking to get on snow and prepare every aspect of our mind and bodies for speed and endurance. Im happy to share this journey with my sponsors and supporters as well as the multiple classrooms I will be mentoring throughout the season with the Classroom Champions Foundation. It is a huge honor of mine to be a featured favorite for the podium. With all of the pressure and support, being shown for the Paralympics I can only hope you will follow me on my journey as I represent you, and my country in Pyeong-Chang. This journey for me is one of personal passion, for those who have believed in me throughout the years and those who have stood behind me through it all. I plan to showcase my spirit, and overcome all of my injuries and doubts throughout the years, including my untimely broken back in Sochi. I want the world to see the Integrity behind Paralympic sport, win, lose or draw, we are all athletes dedicating ourselves to our passions. Pursuing our goals. Seeking the gold. But, the true Integrity behind sport and behind the whole journey, is the adventure that gets us there. Thats why i hope you’ll follow this adventure with me, win, lose or draw I’m hoping this will be our favorite adventure yet.

Looking Forward

Hello from Alaska!

Summer has been fantastic! With lots of exercise and preparation for Pyeong Chang 2017. The regiment is twice a day. Maxing our heart rates and preparing for a tough season of competition. Mixing aerobic, strength and endurance exercises, to make the most of this season.

On the side, as part of my journey to make a difference whenever possible. I am proud to say that was accepted as a Athlete mentor for the organization of Classroom Champions. Where throughout my year i send videos to under privileged classrooms throughout the world, and mentor young students and future athletes. It’s a simple program but it is something i am truly proud of, and looking forward to. As a athlete i truly feel it is a calling of mine to be able to make a difference in the lives of others.

Please give it a quick search and send it to a friend or teacher you know. http://www.classroomchampions.org

With the biggest year of my career on the way, nothing but focus runs through my mind knowing that i need to be as prepared as possible to represent my country and state. This time off in Alaska and at home, gives me a chance to reflect on World Championships, and last season. Not just the wins, but the losses, the close calls, and the mistakes. To better prepare myself for what is next, in this on coming season.

As the summer passes lots of fish have been caught, the freezer has been filled, and my body is being prepared for another Olympic Year. Between volunteering at different events like the kids fun run in Anchorage Alaska and being a athlete for healthy heroes. I am honored to have NetCracker at my back ready and proud to have me as a representative again this year. Fueling me to make a difference and helping me to be the best mentor and athlete possible.

This month i am focusing on reflection. I encourage you to do the same, dreams are powerful. Mine are coming true, i know yours can also. Sometimes it just takes a moment and a little reflection. A time to look back and say, that went well, I’m proud of myself. Or say, that didn’t go as planned, but to take a moment learn from it. Remember there are always good things to look forward to, and to keep fighting for. For me there is being a classroom champion and making a difference. There is Pyeong Chang, being an Olympic athlete and the challenges that lay ahead. But I am also looking forward to representing NetCracker, my country and all those looking up to me.

 

Thank you for your time and support, please take a moment and realize all there is to look forward to.

A new season begins

As the season ends, the adaptive snow team is nothing but thankful for another great Adaptive Spirit event in Vail. We were able to raise nearly a million dollars and well over half a million dedicated to next year! The importance of this for the future of our careers is astounding, especially with Pyeong Chang on the way. My personal support and connections grew with every passing day. Making new friends and acquiring new connections in the cable industry. Getting a chance to represent my sponsors to the best of my ability and giving my sponsors a chance to acquire new business alliances. I had the opportunity to present Netcracker, the company that has been with me, sponsoring me for years. My SuperG globe, an honor of mine and I hope if there’s for years to come! Here’s to nextyear! And many more. #netcracker #adaptivespirit

Monoski Moments

To have someone take a moment of your life. Deem it great enough to write about for others to remember and be inspired and motivated. Or to simply be interested. Is a honor in itself which I am thankful for. These photos are from the AspenTimes and Austin Colbert.
