  • I am honored to have had the opportunity to speak (virtually) at The He(art) of Vail Valley’s Youth event in partnership with @mountainyouth yesterday. Mountain Youth's mission is to "rally around the community, providing support, conversation, education, and collaboration to help all young people in the Eagle River Valley thrive. We do this through a variety of programs that engage youth while helping adults start tough conversations." A big THANK YOU for allowing me the opportunity to discuss the impact art, dance, music, and creativity have had on my career, life, and mental health. 🤗🤗#mentalhealthawareness

  • My Dad used to ask me, almost every single day, what I had on my schedule for a workout. When I was younger, we would do all kinds of workouts together as a family or sometimes just Dad and me. One of his personal favorite workouts were these hill bounding torture intervals he came up with and somehow convinced me to do with him. But when I went to ski academy and then continued onto the US Ski Team, I started getting used to doing my workouts either with my friends, teammates or alone. So from around 15-20 years old I went through this phase—when he would ask about my workout schedule, I'd get really irritated and reply with some snarky remark that deterred him from asking if I wanted his help or company. I don't even know why I did that...but I can not explain how much I regret acting that way. I missed SO many opportunities to spend time with him during those years. Right around 20, apparently I grew out of this "I don't need anyone to help me with anything" phase, and I started accepting his offers. I started asking him to come with me to the track, for my strength sessions, for my plyo workouts...I cherished his company, and wish I had grown up a lot sooner. This "off-season" conditioning block has been filled with flashbacks. I remember him talking about movement mechanics and the science behind why a certain exercise is particularly good for me; adding his two cents in here and there because he especially loved learning about and discussing sports science. He was such a good training companion and doing these workouts reminds me of that. So here we are...still going. Still missing him...but still going.

  • THIS IS NOT A POLITICAL STATEMENT.

I wear a mask for my mom, my brother. For anyone out there who is high risk and knows it, anyone out there who may be high risk but doesn’t know it. For the people who have been sick and survived, and for those who have not made it. For our frontline workers. For our healthcare system—the doctors and nurses whose battle is far from over. For our economy- so we can continue to open and still contain the virus. I wear it to protect the people I love, but also to protect the people I don’t even know.

Who do you wear your mask for?

  • The truth is, today was not harder than every other day since February 2. But it feels wrong to complain about that when there are so many people in the world who are suffering even more than this (that doesn’t feel possible, but I know that it’s true). Maybe the only reason I want to acknowledge Father’s Day at all is because so many people sent messages today that they are thinking of you. I really hope that’s true because you deserve to be thought about all day, every day , until the end of time. • • • To all the fathers out there, I hope you had a wonderful day, full of love. To everyone who was able to talk to their Dad today, or hold his hand, and tell him that you love him… Happy Father’s Day to you too. To anyone whose father is not with you today, Happy June 21—because today, above all else is just another day, and you deserve to feel some happiness every day, no matter what it’s called. And to anyone who is sending their love to my family and me—thank you. But maybe instead of sending it to us, you could send it to him… Maybe if we all send our love together, and we think about him hard enough, he’ll really feel it and then he won’t feel alone.
