Most who know me know that I am a passionate person and athlete. I can be overcome with emotion for my own success as well others’ success. Even watching a complete stranger achieve their own goals fills me with emotion as I continue to dream big myself.
Passion can be an amazing tool, but it can also turn on you. I became at peace with my crash and injury quite early but this hasn’t meant that the process of morning and adapting hasn’t continued. These moments where I’m overcome with emotion tell me there is still more I must face looking backward before I’ll be able to move forward. The web of emotions from this crash are far reaching and ever present as my knee reminds me in every step I take.
These floods of emotion are seemingly a part of my process. Going through them, and facing these emotions will help me return to snow stronger than ever before. However, I also know, if I leave any rock unturned physically and mentally it may eat me from the inside out. I’m dedicated to this process of facing these fears and memories head on – I know it will pay off when my feet touch snow again.
As for my knee itself – well it’s doing awesome! And, instead of explaining my knee's condition, I thought I’d show you with some images that David took this morning (below).
Best Wishes & Smiles,
