Winter sports conditioning class started this week. Tuesday was core, box jumps and balance work. Last night 40 minutes of “Low intensity, high volume cardio!” followed by another 50 minutes of partnered band work and medicine ball exercises.

This morning snow blanketed the hills and every sore muscle was suddenly a promise of winter, a reminder of what is to come. In this new place it’s both strange and familiar all at once.

Here’s to  remembering the past, and dancing toward the future.
