DH World Cup spot for 2010/11!!!

Checking in from the Green Drake Motel!

Chilling in the sunshine!

I’m not counting or anything… But we have 3 days left here!

I have skied better and faster each day we have been on the downhill track here in Aspen and today I was a mere 2 one hundredths off of the podium! I love them to bits, but at least one of those american chicks seem to nick ahead of me every race. I don’t like it. I’m debating pulling a Tanya Harding on some of them? Haha I’m kidding, it’s up to me to decide to ski fast from the top to the bottom of a race course. Once I do that, I will be on top of that podium, and pleased! No better day then tomorrow though! It is the American Nationals DH race, same track as the  one we have been on the past few days. But the difference?  There’s loads of dolla bill$ involved! And I’m not talking about 50 bucks… The winner gets 3,000$ american dollars! The NorAm DH title was announced today after the race. I came 2nd overall this year! This means that I clinched a World Cup spot for myself for next year in Downhill!

Smart fast skiing, leaving everything on the hill, is my game plan for tomorrow!

About

My first name is Alice. I'm called by my middle name, Georgia. I grew up getting beat up by my 3 older brothers Christian, Boyd and Julian. They rock. I love pretty much every sport there is, except maybe rhythmic gymnastics. I wonder who invented that one? Cooking is a fun pastime on a rainy day. The feeling of being on the brink of disaster, going as fast as possible, is indescribable. And I'm not talking about driving a car. It feels awesome being completely and utterly exhausted after giving 110% during a workout. I tell my mother everything (almost)... Examining snowflakes fall onto my jacket while on the chair lift could keep me bewildered for hours(haha, ok maybe not HOURS). I'm pretty sure I make myself laugh too often. Listening to music with my headphones keeps me sane. Making someone smile is contagious. Finishing a knitting project, such as a wicked awesome headband, is totally satisfying. I love being Canadian and having people laugh after I say the words "eh" and "toque". And it happens often. Having friends around the globe is a really cool thing. Experiencing different cultures is eye opening. Traveling all over the world is the best thing, but there is nothing like flying into Vancouver, eating a home cooked meal with my family, and falling asleep in my own bed.
