Aspen supports athletes
I want to thank this wonderful community of ours for all the support they showed my teammate, Noah Hoffman, and I last Friday night at the Limelight. The event was a huge success with more than 100 people in attendance. A special thanks to the Limelight for hosting this amazing evening and to Craig and Becky Ward, Dave Peterson, Mike Trecker, Mike and Sharon Hoffman, the entire Beidleman family (especially Reed and Nina!), and Ruth Brown for all of their behind-the-scenes work that went in to it.
Noah and I are heading to Europe in less than a week to begin the cross-country ski World Cup race season. The circuit will take us to more than 10 nations. I will be gone from Nov. 6 through April 5, racing World Cups nearly every weekend over the six-month period. I can’t tell you how much it means to the two of us to know that all of our friends and supporters back here in the Roaring Fork Valley are behind us 100 percent. I am incredibly proud to call this wonderful place home.
Growing up here meant and still means being raised by many different families. The successes that I’ve had as an athlete have been a product of the support that all of these families have shown me over the 24 years of my life. Each and every time that I put on a bib this season as well as the many race seasons to come, I will be thinking about all the wonderful individuals that are pulling for us from back home.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you to everyone who is behind us in this adventure.
