I am very grateful to MARS refuel for choosing me as one of their athletes for a £500 award.
I entered on their website, I had to say what the money would be spent on and who it would help. I also attached a video.
I had the perfect video of me wiping some poor skier out, and said I would spend it on training, and not only would this help me but save peoples lives. They then called me to say I was on the short list and then a couple of days later I received an email saying I had won.
I am going for an assessment weekend with the British disabled ski team in August, I would love to get on the development squad and get into racing. It will be so similar to leaving the start box cross country, something I really miss. Bring on ski racing… wahoooo!!!
I am tying to learn to jump too… I can take off fine but do not always land the right way up!!! I am sure eventually I will learn!
Dan and I had a great time skiing with Cat at Hemel Hempstead…. which is where we made a jump to practice. I was a little stiff and sore the next day but it was great fun. If I can’t jump on a horse… I shall jump on my mono!
This weekend is the hog roast, and the forecast is good. It is now at Eye Kettleby Lakes.
I shall report on that next week.
