Here’s someone who skis even more than I. This is our first update from SkiHere’s Adopt-a-Skier:
“I am Molly-Jane Strum and I am a cross country ski racer. I am 12 years old and ski with Canmore Nordic ski club. My coaches are Kathy Davies, Roy Strum, and Phil Wood. I really love to ski and to race. I especially love skating sprints.
This month I have been focusing on spending lots of time on my skis. Over Christmas holidays I have been doing lots of big volume to help me do well at Westerns in February and at Alberta Youth Championships. Mostly I have been skiing at West Bragg Creek ski trails, but also at the Canmore Nordic Centre. In December I raced in the AB Cup races in Canmore. I had a great sprint race and worked hard in my classic distance race.
In January, I will be going to Edmonton to the Alberta Cup races and a Bow Corridor race in Calgary. I have three ski practices a week with my team, plus ski two or three other days where I ski at West Bragg Creek or Canmore. I also like to do English horseback riding and do that on Fridays.
This season, I plan to have lots of fun and go in lots of races. I feel really lucky to have lots of ski friends at my ski club. I especially like going on road trips to ski races with my friends.”
Good luck in your races, and we’ll be looking forward to your next update. Above all, have fun!
