Welcome to the heartbreak hotel
After a good camp in Nakiska I headed down with the Canadian Team to Denver to start off the race season! After a night in Denver we drove to Loveland. As it is the US Thanksgiving weekend...they served Thanksgiving at the ski hill for lunch. Not my favourite thing before a world cup time trials! Our time trials were 4 runs...our best two runs combined time. I had a good first run followed by two not great runs. My fourth was again better. The result was heartbreaking...I missed qualifying for my first World Cup by .06 of a second. I am not sure I have been as heartbroken as yesterday afternoon since I dnf'd at Nor-Am finals (costing me a world cup spot for this year). It feels as if I cannot catch a break. No matter how badly I want it...no matter how confident I am feeling going into things...it doesnt seem to work out. I keep thinking..sometimes good things do happen...just not this time...again.
