In My Head || Killington Slalom 2019

On this beautiful 1st day of May, I send you my thoughts on the Killington Resort slalom and one of those creepy smiles that I make when I’m ‘tired-happy’ (check out the video to know what I’m talking about ????????????).

  1. I loved so much about this segment: 1) MS has humanity: She has emotions, doubts, worry as well as confidence, belief, and excitement (as the saying sort of goes, “She puts her speed suit on one leg at a time”); 2) MS has humility: She makes mistakes and owns them; 3) It’s not automatic: She has to psych herself up in the start and get her mind in the right place; 4) Remember when she was “slow” to the first split? Now she turns her nerves into fight by adopting an “aggressive mindset;” 5) She knows that what works for her doesn’t necessarily work with other racers; 6) It’s not easy being great, even for her; 7) She’s really funny, even goofy (in a good way); 8) She’s a great sport; 9) She’s a great lady!
