"The quote of the day was from one of our coaches: “You were laying flatter on the straightaway than any other pedestrian I’ve seen, and you had perfect form. Don’t do that because you don’t know what you’re doing yet.”
He was right. I had no idea what I was doing....Terrified, I kept chanting to myself, “Life is living outside of your comfort zone.”
Of course, it helped tremendously that my loyal cheerleader was right beside me luging for his first time, too. We both made the podium, placing 🥉 during our respective time trials. I slid into a third place finish in the women’s division with a time of 21.582 seconds.
It was exhilarating and frightening at the same time. Who knew that my first medal of the season would be from the luge?
