|...our Milwaukee speedskating family...|
So it's been a month since we've come back from summer ice training in Inzell, Germany. If you haven't watched our Inzell recap video, enjoy watching it here:
For the first 2 weeks in August we trained out of our hometown in Wheaton, drove up to Northbrook, IL for some velodrome cycling with Brian Hansen & Robert Lehmann (our German Olympian teammate), and had a mini training camp at Brian's Michigan lakehouse including Darren Huang (our Taiwanese teammate). Darren made a crazy, awesome video from that trip, watch here:

But as tough as these last weeks have been, we've still been able to
incorporate a little fun in between to give Robert a taste of good ol' America. From a Brewers baseball game (thanks for the tickets Mitch Ferguson!), to watching my younger brother, Johnny's, American football practice, to jumping in Lake Michigan, to getting a glimpse of a crazy Harley Davidson weekend in Milwaukee...we created some great memories as a team amongst our hard work. Sadly Robert had to go back to Germany this past Saturday, but he will always be part of TeamSwiderPeltz :) He was a great contribution to our team, obviously helping us out with workouts, but also giving us constructive criticism that has made us a better team. He will be greatly missed now, but we hope to be seeing him soon on the Fall World Cup Circuit in November.

make this next Olympic team together!
