Countdown to ski season

Summer in Steamboat is fleeting, but after the first snowfall of the season, everyone starts counting down to opening day. We got our first snowfall on the last day of September when the mountain was bright with the orange and gold colors of fall. It was one of the prettiest falls I can remember in my nearly 10 years in Steamboat, with stunning colors, the excitement of the season's first snowflakes and warm, sunny days deep into October.…

When You Don't Like Lemonade

You have probably heard the expression, "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade." I have always appreciated this as it adds a sense of levity and positivity to most situations. I often have thought of this and probably even subconsciously have used it as a sort of a mantra through life's frustrations and difficulties.

Recently, after an ongoing rough patch I suddenly realized, I'm sick of lemonade! I would really love a nice cup of soothing tea. Enough of the lemons and lemonade.…

Training Blocks not Blues

Every fall , it's the same story. We all have the sudden stress of "getting in shape for ski season". One month before ski season, we crank out a few hundred squats and lunges hoping to dissipate the intense lactic acid come our first few runs. Sure, it helps but what if there was a totally different way to approach our ski fitness which would go well beyond our first winter turns?



Yes, Here it is.

First, look at each month like a block of training. It will give you steps…

Goals Shmoals

Recently I heard a commencement speech from Tim Minchin. Now whether or not you are famliar with Tim or even approve of his humor, he had some incredible insight which has left me thinking.

Speaking to his alma mater, Tim wanted to bestow 9 key points to tackling life after college. The entire speech is actually quite fabulous but the first point left me questioning my own logic. He very bluntly started his 9 key points with the audacious comment,  "You don't have to have a dream".…

Time to Get Back, Slowly

In many of my past blog posts I've written about training and conditioning based on my personal experience. This blog post is no different.

Recently, I had fairly major surgery on my knee from an injury I incurred last winter. After two months of being unable to much of anything, I am ready to get moving again. Unlike earlier posts where I was writing from the vantage point of being healthy and strong, today I am starting at square one.

Something I've always known, but what…
