I have settled into my April month-off routine of working, resting, doing yoga, having fun with my buddies and catching up on my to-do list.
My season ended at the National Champs in Corner Brook, Newfoundland. It was logistically a tough place to hold an event but it was fun to see a different part of Canada and the volunteers did a great job putting on the event.
I had a slow start to the event which is my typical post-cold feeling but I was happy with bronze in the sprint and 5th in the 30km.
Chris and I stayed in Newfoundland for a few extra days and did some exploring. We drove to Bottle Cove one morning which was my favorite spot of the trip:
The next day we explored Gros Morne National Park. It was a beautiful drive with a fun little expedition to Western Brook Pond.
I have been in Canmore since Nationals, actually working a normal work week for Buff. The change has been good for me and it is always nice to get a proper paycheque! The Buff crew has been great and I've had fun jobs like organizing a photo shoot for our next catalogue complete with this adorable puppy!

The new Buff helmet liners are great! Here's Chris modeling the helmet liner (and looking handsome). Perfect for chilly bike rides to work!

Chris and I also had a cheesy sunset picnic on top of Ha Ling last night. We are so lucky to live in such a beautiful spot!
As it is the end of another season I would like to send out a thank you to all my amazing sponsors: Buff Canada, Fischer skis, Swix poles, Salomon boots and bindings, Bliz Eyewear, Foods Alive and Espressotec. Also National Team sponsors Oneway clothing, USANA vitamins, Auclair gloves and Smartwool socks. In addition the Alberta World Cup Academy, coaches, teammates, CCC, CCBC and of course my family, boyfriend and friends!
