2015-2016 USASA SBX Year-End Re-Cap

Sunrise Over the Boardercross Course
The regular race season ended up being much shorter than usual with my relocation to the East Coast to work as Snowsports School Director for Seven Springs Mountain Resort.  The winter didn’t really get going until early January and ended quickly in early March.  The USASA Appalachian Series only had one weekend of racing at Massanutten in Virginia.  I was lucky to get time off to make the 2nd day of competition and qualify for Nationals.  Big thanks to the App Series for running the event even though it was pouring down rain all day.

Recent TV Media Spots

One of my responsibilities as Snowsports School Director at Seven Springs Mountain Resort (PA) includes promoting our Resort, Mountain Community and Lifestyle with local media.  Recently I had the chance to chat with TV Hosts from Columbus (WSYX ABC 6 – Alissa Henry – Good Day Marketplace) and Washington DC (WUSA 9 – Meaghan Mooney – Great Day Washington).

It’s been quite a while since I’ve done any media work, so I felt a little rusty with the first crew.  Still a fun process to be part of and looking forward to more opportunities as the winter goes on.

Check out the videos below and keep in mind you might have to put up with some ads before watching each one, so hang in there.

You Should Be Rowing (Better)

Though it may sound weird, I like rowing.  Trust me though; there was a long time where I did not like rowing.  About the first ¾ of year through my first serious rowing program, I did not look forward to the rowing portions of my training.  I did them because I was pleased with the results.
500m Row Stats
I don’t know how it changed, but one day after a long row I got off the Concept 2 ERG and thought, “I actually enjoyed that”.  And ever since, I’ve been way less grumpy, and sometimes enthused about doing my rowing sessions.
