Current Mantra: Today is the Day — Danielle Sidell
Jottings:It’s a go for the Kortelopet!. The slight nagging cold seems to have become a non issue, so I really can’t think of any reason to not.
I’m not a proficient skier. I haven’t put in much work; the longest I’ve skate skied is 11.3 miles. I have have zero expectations for the Korte. I’m going in blind nello with absolutely no tricks up my sleeve.
But you have start somewhere. I started this journey on a whim with a simple thought. I want to learn how to skate ski. So I signed up for the Korte last summer to serve as both my carrot and stick. Right now, it seems more like a stick, but once it’s done it will be a sweet tasty carrot.
I’m certain that my inaugural will be nothing short of spectacular. In North America this is the New York or Boston Marathon of skiing, and I get to be a part of it. How many get to say that in a life time?
