|Maddie and I on an afternoon run in Utah|
|My room in our house in Utah. Even though it is small and has no door there is more privacy then the six person bunk room that started in and then took the mattress from.|
Even though I am excited to be here in Utah I was sad to leave home, as always my time there was to short. After living the life of an athlete where you have lots of "down time" I appreciate going home even more, there is always sometime to do and never a dull moment. While at home I got quite a bit of firewood for the winter, helped with moving the sheep one day, and helped my Uncle straighten up a barn that was falling over and probably would not have withstood the winter.
|Straightening up the barn... notice the chain from the bumper to the barn.|

Lastly but certainly not least I am proud to announce that I have a new sponsor, Bliz! Earlier this summer I submitted an application to the company and just found out that they decided to sponsor me with sun glasses. I have never had any kind of eyewear sponsorship and am pretty excited!! I can't wait to try their proflip sunglasses/snow shield, sunglasses that just flip up out of the way for shooting. I have seen lots of biathletes using these I think they will be quite effective. Check out their website for the full product lineup... http://www.blizeyewear.com.
