With my best ever season at an end, one would think that it would be the time to sit back, relax and reflect on the success, defeats and obstacles of the past season but no, here we are in Whistler for our first off season training camp.
It is somewhat bittersweet at this time of year as the last thing that I want to do, is put on my plastic shoes (aka ski boots) opposed to my flip flops which are calling my name. On the other hand we have been given an amazing opportunity to be training on the future Olympic track.
Canadians are notoriously “diplomatic” people, almost to a fault sometimes. We are the first and probably the only team to offer key training spots to other teams; we virtually give them away. We are learning though, and we are taking a step in the right direction.
