The meet was extremely low key and not too much pressure, which allowed me to focus on the technical stuff and not get too hype about the competition. I considered myself the Granny out on the runway, as I was about 10 years older than any of my competitors. Luckily I haven’t sprouted any grey hairs yet so I’m able to blend in just a little.
Below is a video of my first jump, which ended up being my furthest. I’m a little shaky in the coaching department these days so I figured I would ask my blog readers what I should do to jump a little further next time. Who knows…perhaps one of you knows the magic formula! And if not, there are enough of you that like being armchair coaches anyway so here is your chance!
P.S. I am also accepting applications for a new videographer. This position doesn't pay well, but you get to travel with me at times and I'll wink at you from the track. The only qualification is you must know how to film better than the above video!
