Monday, November 12 National Ski Team Perspective - By: George Grey
As athletes (and all other beings) we are faced with weighing the best alternative forgone. Why I bring this up is because I always have to justify myself to my friends when I am asked to come out wakeboarding, partying, or to go for a road trip.

To hit the snooze button means many more enjoyable moments of slumber, to give in and accept the reality of the alarm clock means the beginning of a long day of solo training.
