Q ST OLYMPIC SLEDDING & TOBAGGAN TEAM PRACTICE

we all woke up the next morning with minor injuries. my boss told me "you aren't 7 anymore". it is true, but i am never going to stop living life and fully as someone who is 7 does. i, frankly, think the injury came out of a one of the curses of experience: you know the potential for pain, so you tense up for it. had i just been relaxed, which i did for the extra rides i took post-injury, i would have never been hurt in the first place.

being in your 30's means you know that you can get hurt, but doesn't mean you have to live in fear of it. why can't it also mean, you understand that healing happens??

anyway, here are some fun photos and the video is going to soon be a classic :)

the level of difficulty for that full body twist,
face plant dismount is hard to explain
