I always have fun at the US Open but to be perfectly honest I was not loving it this year...at the end of the weekend I was feeling pretty beat up mentally and physically and I was seriously considering whether or not I should even go to Scotland for the World Cup. After a few not so good national results it does not exactly give you the confidence to go and compete with the best in the world. But after some serious deliberation I decided to head out to Ft. William...and I am so happy that I did! :)
Like I said before, racing the World Cups is a whole different ball game, particularly in Europe. Its just awesome. The competition is stiff. The tracks are big. And the vibe is just awesome.
The Scottish Highlands are beautiful...and the mountains are way bigger than I imagined. There is lots of greenery and beautiful lakes. To make it even better we are staying at this awesome lodge/rv/camper/mobile home place over looking one of the lakes. It is definitely cozy but I feel like I am at summer camp and its awesome. Kinda makes me want to roast marshmallows.
Tomorrow we have the course walk, I will keep you guys posted. Oh yes and just to let you know it is almost midnight and its still totally light out.
