A huge adrenaline rush is usually followed by a pretty low point.
I'm still having fun and as long as skiing is enjoyable, I'm going to continue to do it.
We should tell our kids to just have fun, participate and not get bent on winning or losing. But every coach, when they say that, they say it tongue in cheek, 'Don't worry about winning': If you win I'll get you ice cream, but if you lose I'm going to pout in the car.
It's not quite as important who you beat as that you end up on top.
My goal is the same as every year - to not hurt myself.
