Much Needed Short Update!

Definitely needing to update y'all...sorry it's been a while! In brief, Jeffrey, my mom and Brian are in Inzell, Germany at the moment, training for a couple weeks after Brian's 1500m world cup race last Sunday. He dominated by taking another 3rd place podium finish! After these next weeks, Brian will race another world cup in Erfurt, Germany while Jeffrey and mom/coach will be heading to Salt Lake City for the American Cup Final and then onto Calgary, Canada where I will be meeting them there for my last competition this season, the Finale.

Since returning home from the U.S. Championships and Regionals out in Salt Lake City over Christmas break, I have been revamping and sketching out new goals for the next couple months and then into Olympic year. Yes, the 2014 Olympics are less than a year away now! For me, my focus right now is on the competition in Calgary, March 7th-10th. A solid race where I will be shooting for a PB (personal best) is the goal, which will bring back confidence in my racing leading into the Olympic season. Until then, I have been cranking out great workouts and perfecting technique even more. While my training partners have left me for beautiful Inzell, Germany, I have been blessed with other training partners while Brian and Jeffrey are gone. Jilleanne Rookard, Chase, Darren, along with Dano, Jacky, Tweddale...we've had some great workouts already this week and pumped to continue this change-up of training partners for a bit! You guys are great!

So as this Calgary Finale competition nears, I will be keeping you all posted on my progress and then the results from those races. Jeffrey, too, will be updating on his end the races he has in Salt Lake City as well as Calgary.

In the meantime, today is Valentine's Day. And though we love to share and show our love to those closest to us, let us be reminded on how God's sacrifice of His son was the ultimate love story. Giving us a chance to have a relationship with Him and life of eternity = hope. 1 John 4:19, "We love because He first loved us."

God bless you all,
Nancy Jr.
