Yesterday, I talked about how I did at Loon for my first Giant Slalom race of the ski season. Today, I will be talking about how I did at Waterville Valley for my second GS race of the season. I went up the slowest chairlift I have ever been on, and inspected the course. The corse had its ups and downs.......literally. I was assuming that this would be one of the hardest and longest courses I will ever run in my life. The course was just a bit longer than half a mile, and it still had a lot of hard parts in it. There were a couple of gates where you could not even see the top of them. I got to the start gate feeling a little bit worried on how I was going to do, and I had a good reason too! This course was gong to be tough for everyone! I went down the course, and the moment I crossed that darn red line, I collapsed. Filled with exhaustion, I lay there, staring at the blank canvas of blue above me. That moment stopped when I was sprayed by the next racer of course. My time had not been so great, it was a 1:17:50. The first place time was about a 1:04. I hoped to improve by a lot for my second run, and I failed (sort of). I had a better time on my second run (1:14:56), but I don't think I skied that well. I skidded in between turns, and I gained to much speed when I did not need to. On a happy note, those are not my only races of the season. I have a lot more to go, and I will report back on when those races come!
