Chilling for a week at Woodward. I had my doubts about whether or not I would enjoy myself. Meeting new people really isn't my thing, but I neglected to take into account the common passion that we all share. Snowboarding has brought all of the Pacsun Team members together for a week of training and fun, just as it has for so many other people. In the first day I already found myself doing things that I didn't think that I would ever do, like trying cart wheels on the balance beam or back flips on flat ground. Watching the other members of the team try new things made me want to do the same.
At the end of Friday, I was sad to say good bye to everyone. Our team dinners, paintball, dancing and spending an obscene amount of time together had brought us close together. I am sure that our paths will cross again but the length of time in between now and then won't be the most entertaining. I am thankful to have had this opportunity to be among this great group of athletes. They pushed me to try things that I had never imagined i would try. They were full of encouragement and hilarity making the week an unforgettable one. Thanks everyone!!
