Lots of new things are going on in the blog! If you get this content delivered to you by a reader, make sure you visit the site itself at http://www.skiingintheshower.blogspot.com to see what's up!
First of all, I want to say thank you to those of you who have so generously donated to the training fund. I am on my way to buying an avalanche beacon and some other (gently) used equipment that is much needed. If you are interested in donating to the training fund, visit the sidebar and scroll down to the Paypal Donate button. No, its not tax deductible (yet), but thanks for helping out!
Also in the sidebar, you will see a new feature called "Quotes that Help", a section featuring new quotes every week or so, and why they have helped me. If you have any you like and have a reason why, post a comment here and I may use them! Please make sure you give your name and hometown, and I will credit the quote to you.
You will also find pics of my incredibly supportive team, links to folks that have helped me out, a section on Gear and Gear reviews, as well as a wishlist for gear (that goes to my Baggle Bag) The gear section is one that I hope to flesh out quite a bit in the next few weeks, all about dryland training gear, exercises, new ways to use balance equipment, as well as skiing gear and technical clothing. Please check back on the gear pages in a week or so, and I will post here when they are updated. Thanks for being patient!
Also in the sidebar are tips from the Nutritionist, as well as books she uses and links to Amazon to purchase them. By the way, anything that links to Amazon pays me a commission RIGHT into my training fund, so thanks for checking that stuff out from here!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and for your emails of encouragement. Please feel free to share your own stories, or to talk about your experiences in the Comments portion on this blog. I'd love to hear some more dialog!
