Calgary Olympic Oval
It's exciting but daunting at the same time because when training starts up again for next season in a couple weeks, it'll be for the Olympic year. For Sochi 2014.
As I updated you all a couple weeks ago, my mom and I took a different approach to my training since our Nationals in December, and it continues to be a success. During these last weeks, I have gained back confidence in my skating and my body is holding up really well, which I owe completely to my therapy support team (Paula, Dr. Major, Dr. Yoss, Dr. Carl, Dena, my parents) and Extreme Endurance, a product that continues to give me great results each training session!

Races begin next Wednesday at the oval in Calgary, Canada, the site of the 1988 Olympic Games, which was my mom's last Olympics and the one where I was 1-year old, being strollered around the Olympic grounds while people attached Olympic pins on my hand-made sweater. I so wish I could have remembered all those memories at that age!
