Antholz stadium, pre-World Cup craziness.
Sometimes all you need is a little time off to get things back on track. For me, it took some time with my family, a few days in Venice, and a week of solid training back in Antholz before I headed to Oslo and found my stride. While one race is far from proof I'm back on track, it's a great start, and there's plenty more chances to keep improving.
Tomorrow is the Pursuit here in Oslo, and hopefully things will go well enough to earn me a spot in the Mass Start on Sunday. For now, here's some pictures of my rejuvenation! :)
My aunt, uncle and parents joined came to watch me in Antholz and then spent a few days traveling around Italy. (photo: Thom Folan)
Our drive down to Venice through the Dolomites was incredibly beautiful...
Then we got to Venice, which was beautiful too!

...or delicious. :)
Antholz was the perfect place to finish the week with some solid training. Great snow and inspiring landscape...perfect!
