Hey y'all, if you are still hanging out on my blog I commend and thank you. Obviously I have not been very good at keeping you up to date on my travels and training, but you are still here so the least I could do is update you now.
This year has been an extraordinary one. You'd have to be living under a rock to not know that as we are currently in the midst of a global pandemic that is changing almost every facet of our lives. For me, it was a nice change of pace this spring as I was able to spend A LOT of time, at least for me, with Jillian during the stay at home order. However, as the training year came into view, how COVID was going to affect our team training camps was unclear. It didn't take long to see that things were going to be very different this year as travel was going to be tough to manage.
Being based out of the Midwest, it meant I wasn't going to be able to travel back and forth from Lake Placid, NY as easily and would need to find different training venues to take advantage of. Now in October I have since driven over 20,000 miles this year traveling around the country while trying to train. It has brought many new adventures and allowed me to do things in a new way.
When my friend Chris, who is a video producer, heard of some of my adventures this year he persuaded me to start documenting some of my unorthodox training camps on video. As a result of this persuasion I have now launched Biathlon Uncharted, a YouTube channel that follows my travels as I train for biathlon. So if you haven't already, you should head over to my channel on YouTube and subscribe so you can stay up to date as more videos come out! Also make sure you comment with your questions and of stuff you want to see more of. We are still in the early stages, but we are looking to keep refining things and come out with high quality content.
So here is to a new venture of sharing my travels with those who have supported me over the years. I hope that my videos can properly depict some of the different aspects of the athlete lifestyle, both good and bad. I hope you are all staying healthy and always remember, the journey #StartsNOW!
