My goals for the 2007 Canada Winter Games
My goal for the 2007 Canada Winter Games is to gain experience from all the races and events that will take place. A specific goal that I would like to achieve is to qualify for the sprint event (top 30 qualify). I think it would be awesome to race head to head against some of the fastest skiers in the country.
My personal role model
My Grandma, she really inspires me by still being physically active by being a part of the Chemosavy dragon boat team for breast cancer survivors. Her enthusiasm for live always inspires me, I look forward to every time she dies her hair pink!
