Blog Holiday

Well the title kind of says it all, since being home I decided to give myself a little blog holiday. Although I haven’t really stopped since being home so it hasn’t really felt like a Holiday!

After getting back to Australia, I had two days at home and then I drove down to Melbourne. In Melbourne I had and OWIA (Olympic Winter Institute of Australia) induction day, SSA (Ski and Snowboard Australia) Awards night and the Wings for life World Run.

First up was the induction day which was quite informative and I actually learn’t a few things throughout the day.Then I had the SSA awards and I managed to snag slopestyle Athlete of the year!

My self with Alex Pullin, Britt Cox, Laura Peel and Scotty James. Congrats to Laura and Scotty for getting Athlete’s of the year!

Following the induction was the Wings for Life world run. I had a couple of days to kill in between so I got to go and skate St Kilda skate park. I haven’t spent much time skating over the last 6 months so it felt pretty damn good to be back on the board.

St Kilda Skate park is pretty damn fun! I was definitely a bit rusty on the board though.

Then it was time for the run. For those of you who don’t know, it’s is a charity run with all the proceeds going to spinal chord research. Basically the finish line for the race is a car and it chases you. What I mean by this is there is a chaser car that starts 30 minutes after you and when the car overtakes you your race is done. I was pretty skeptical on how far I was going to make it in the run with my knees but I actually surprised myself and made it to 10km!

10km marker. Not bad for the knees!

I am now back in Jindy and I am looking forward to relaxing and having a little down time! Its been a hectic week since I have been back and now I feel like I need a little break!

Over and out,
