What a strange trip to Europe that was a few weeks a ago. The tickle in my throat began on the airplane. By the time I was at friend’s house in Austria it was two days in bed, chewing on zinc and aspirin like the locals gobble landjaeger. Took weeks to truly get over it. I guess they didn’t hit the flu vaccine this year, or perhaps just the rhino virus from hades? At any rate, my cardio is good so I’m able to fake it once I’m not bed chained, so I did get to the Dynafit Press Event like I was supposed to and did a day of backcountry skiing with those guys. Just wanted to share about this a bit, as the location in Germany was high quality (provided it had deep enough snow, which this winter has yielded).
