Big Move. Park City Bound.

It was a pretty stressful conversation back in January when I heard my coach would be moving to Salt Lake City as the national team coach.  I had no intentions of ever moving away from Milwaukee because I had everything I needed for training and I was close to home.  Kip and some others thought otherwise.  I guess in order to make a step in skating I had to take a huge leap and trust my coaches...even if it was very uncomfortable.  I've already taken some gambles with life so why stop now?
At any rate, I finished the 2012 skating season on a decent note, spent time with my family, went crazy on planning and packing, and now I finally made the trip out to Park City.  Thanks to sister Lisa for helping me upgrade my vehicle, thanks to brother Billy for getting my excess 'crap' out of Milwaukee, and thanks to brother Steve and Julie for showing me a good time over Easter and in Florida!  I hope I can keep my head in the game and make my family proud for all the love they show me.  I sure will be far away and I fear I may not see them as often as I'd like, but I got to do what I got to do.  I hope I have lots of good things to say about my time out here in Utah and hopefully some good results come from this training experience!
