Cardrona

Some shots from our first block here at Cardrona, NZ

I’ve gone on a lot of runs for my morning warm ups and afternoon drylands around Lake Wanaka

Every morning I do another warm up on the mountain. To start, I go for a little hike. Here, I hike to the top of the mountain from the start of our course you can see in this picture. After getting my heart rate up I activate my muscles with specific exercises starting with the large muscle groups then warming up the small ones, like my inner core and low back muscles. Everyone has their own specific warm up routine

The park rats love it here! We might make fun of them for wearing their ski pants around their ankles, but they are incredible to watch from the chair lift

I’d be lying through my teeth if I said I missed this….

I’m sure I’ll have more pictures to put up before the end of this camp!

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.
