This month has been a very good month in terms of my pursuit of skeleton. I just got back to Austin after having spent 2 weeks in Lake Placid. Even though there were several ups and downs, I think my biggest take away is to relax when I’m going down that ice. Kind of ironic because I often get told to relax by Jesus when I’m panicked and desperate for answers. But I learned a ton and got some good feedback from Matt Antoine, Olympic medalist, and Stephen Garbett, one of our nation’s top sliders.
Next week I’m headed to Park City, UT for some sliding. My personal goal is to learn the new track quickly, meaning have some very good awareness of where I am at all times. This track is a lot faster than Lake Placid’s so I’m excited on plenty different fronts.
