It’s Been A While…

25 Aug

I know, I know. I haven’t been very good about updating this blog. I want to throw out some excuses like, “I’ve been really busy” (which isn’t fully true), or “I haven’t had internet…” (ha.. that’s not a very good excuse), or “nothing has been happening” (which is almost never true).  So here I am, updating.

Let me see… the last update I remember… New Year’s! Wow. It has been a while. A lot has happened since then. I think the best way to go about sharing my experiences with you is through pictures, otherwise, this would probably turn into a three page post. So without delaying any longer, here’s a little summary based on a thousand words per picture. 🙂

Training in Hochgurgl, Austria.

Then across the country to Quebec to ski at Le Massif for World Juniors. Stairway to heaven? Thank goodness we didn't have to climb up those this trip.

    Nice photos Abby – even the artsy ones! Must be nice to see so many parts of the world while training and racing. I hope to see another post soon. Keep believing! – Karen
