Sports have always been a big part of my life. I had the privilege of playing volleyball in college. A few years after graduating I happened upon one of the best communities I have ever had the pleasure to be a part of, Crossfit. Quickly I fell into competing again.
While working out in the gym (Front Range Crossfit) a few months ago I was told about the opportunity to compete in a different sport, when my friend told me about a local Bobsled Combine. While I didn't know much about Bobsled, I knew it was a power sport...."A big girl sport" :)
NOW, I'm hooked! My combine scores earned me an invite to a weeklong camp at the Lake Placid Olympic Training Center (a dream come true). After a week of learning how to push the sled and sometimes learning how NOT to push the sled.... :)
I started to figure it out just in time for our Rookie Push Championships.
Check out the results of the rookie competition below:
I return to Lake Placid in October to compete once again but this time against rookies and veterans; the goal is to earn a spot the National Team in hopes that the next fours years will look like this...
So what's my point???
What I am discovering about Bobsled is that it is a unique sport of hardworking athletes that dedicate their lives for a competition that lasts less than a minute! It also happens to be an expensive sport. I’ve always loved a challenge and this is my ultimate challenge, but I need your help. I would greatly appreciate any and all support, even the non-monetary kind (words of encouragement are always appreciated). GO TEAM USA!!!!!
