2013 Freestyle Worlds

Kayak Freestyle WorldsWell, I didn’t expect that one!! I spent the last two months at the NOC training for the Freestyle Worlds, hoping that I would at least make the first cut. I was not super consistent on my McNasty’s or Phonix Monkeys but I was hoping to make a showing.

Slowing it Down

Read more about "Slowing it Down"I was hoping to be ending my three part series of my Middle Salmon trip pretty quickly, that did not happen. Only a few days after posting my second part of the series my best friend, Shannon Christy (and large part of my Salmon trip) died in a kayaking accident on the Potomac River. My world began to spin and suddenly my summer changed from being the best summer I have ever had in my life to hearing the worst news and feeling the most heartbroken that I have felt. 

GoPro Mountain Games 2013

GoPro Mountain GamesAs always, the GoPro Mountain Games (formerly the Teva Mountain Games), starts off with a bang at Homestake Creek in Colorado. We are about 30 minutes outside of Vail in a town called Red Cliff and theres a roadside section of river that drops 450 feet per mile. Its an amazing stretch of whitewater and this year it actually had some water in it! My runs didn’t go as well as I had hoped and I ended up in 3rd place behind Martina Wegman and Natalie Anderson.
