Experience with skiing:
My experience is quite limited. I did some skiing back in the days with my family, but that was not really my cup of tee as a kid. Last time I did any sort of cross-country skiing was in the finnish military 2010, and that was with skies from about the 80’s wrapped to my rubber boots from the 90’s. No formula for success - let’s see how it goes with modern equipment.
Why did I apply:
I’ve been active in sports all my life and used to play handball semi-professionally. Lately however, I’ve been searching for something new and exciting to motivate me in a training setting. A bigger reason than just to stay healthy. Something to aim for that would reignite the motivation to push myself to the limit, a motivation I have not had too many times since I threw my handball shoes in the basement.
Ultimately, this project presents the perfect opportunity to train hard and have fun at the same time. Additionally, cross-country skiing is a completely uncharted territory for me and a sport I probably would not pick up without participating in the project. Something truly new and exciting.
I expect the project to be challenging, but fun at the same time. Learning the proper skiing technique will probably be one of the more difficult tasks (if we don’t count the event itself). I’m definitely looking forward to get in better shape personally and also getting to know the other participants in the project.
