These were some of the hardest races I’ve ever done in any sport, and although I didn’t come close to winning any medals, I finally realized why people love this Nordic skiing thing and how fun the community is.
I’m not saying that I’m giving up on truly racing, but I have a whole new perspective. Life gives us little lessons along the way. It’s what we do with those lessons that matters. There are always two roads. Which one do we take?
Do you ever finish a race and your hair is one big knot? It’s happened to me far too many times, which is why I had to master my hair styling techniques for triathlons. After swimming, biking, and running for hours, the last thing I want is to be taking a shower trying to get knots out of my hair.
I recently saw a post on social media from a woman asking about what someone would recommend for nutrition while training for a marathon. This is a question I dislike when people answer because there is no one-size-fits-all or even one-size-fits-most answer to this.

You may find yourself doing several tests before you find your perfect combination.
