Body Image

I recently got a request to do a post about body image from a young girl who participated in "Girls with Guns" with me this past weekend. We hosted girls from age 8-18 with a range of ski experience, not to mention all of the coaches were in their 20's. Therefore, we saw many different body types. Even if you're not a skier, you will go through life seeing so many different body types. The media tries to portray a certain "ideal" image, and this can also happen in the Nordic world. The only body I strive for is the one that has FUN Let me just start this off by saying there is no ideal body type! The only thing that's important is that you are healthy. We are all different and there is no re

Hello Spring!

The biathlon season is over!! The snow is melting!! I don't have to put on a race bib anytime soon!! After a long race season, it is nice to start thinking about spring and warmer weather. Later this week I'll be heading out to Montana for about a week of adventuring. I'm hoping to get in a ton of rock climbing, trail running, hiking, and skiing while I'm out there. All activities that I haven't been able to do for the past 5 months..I'm so excited! If you haven't seen my Season Edit yet, check it out below! Earlier this week were our final races of the season, US Biathlon Nationals. I knew going into these races that it would be tough, my body was pretty much done with racing and my immune

Biathlon by the Numbers

5 months on the road 7 countries 12 hotel beds 18 flights 25,503 air miles (41,043 km) 2,244 driving miles (3,611 km) 20 competitions 10 hours of racing 4 loads of laundry 5 celebrations Best Airport Helsinki, Finland It was clean, bright, and not a huge airport which made it easy to get from one gate to another. Worst Airport Chicago O'Hare, USA Almost every time I fly through Chicago I end up getting flight delays or cancellations, usually due to weather. If I can, I try to avoid this airport at all costs. Traveling is fun! Best Drive Martell, Italy to Ruhpolding, Germany The mountains in Martell are so beautiful, and it's a really fun drive through several mountain passes and twisty roads

End of the International Season

Tere! That's "hello" in Estonian for those of you that aren't fluent in the language. I'm currently in Otepää, Estonia for the final IBU Cup races of the season, which are also my final international races of this season. Unfortunately, the jet lag hit me pretty hard traveling from South Korea, and my immune system took a toll. I woke up the morning of the Single Mixed Relay with a scratchy throat which has progressively gotten worse. This was my very first time racing the Single Mixed Relay and it was a blast despite fighting off a cold! The wind made the shooting tricky, but I was pleased with the race all-in-all. The next day we did a Sprint, and this was honestly the worst race of my ent

South Korean Adventures

Traveling to South Korea was a crazy experience. I'm so grateful I was able to be a part of the trip and check out the future 2018 Winter Olympics venue! It's hard to put the whole experience into words...but I made a list, threw some photos together, and took a couple of videos! Things I can check off the bucket list after this trip: - Traveled to Asia - Been 14 hours ahead of the U.S. - Raced at 9 pm - Spoke Korean (can say "Hello" and "Thank you") - Was 30 minutes away from the North Korean border - Stayed up until 3 am on a regular basis - Slept in until 12 pm on a regular basis - Ate white rice at almost every meal for a week We had to store our rifles in these little lockers whenever w
