It is so very unfortunate and unfair that post- season events were cancelled due to the COVID-19 Virus. However, VARA competitors should know, you were not alone in this abrupt ending. Hard working athletes across the globe were affected. There are many things to be psyched about from your season! Hopefully you are keeping a list and they are posted on your wall. This circumstance is a challenge (one of many to come) in your life, that you will overcome and return ready to roar!
It has been a encouraging to see the unique and creative ways VARA member athletes and programs have been dealing with social distancing which has restricted the ability to train together. Programs have been sharing nutrition info as well as training tips to do in your living room and yard. Athletes have been posting lots of cool hobbies and started new businesses. Being resourceful and making the most of a tough situation is ingrained in a ski racers psyche. You got this!
Its important to continue to stay in touch with your coach and teammates. Check in show support and reach out if you are in need. Remember to be kind as we all venture through this uncharted territory!
BE SAFE, BE WELL, BE POSITIVE
