I’m writing to you from beautiful (so far, we only arrived a few hours ago!) Budapest, Hungary, where our team travelled to today for a training camp. We’re here for the next two weeks and will be accomplishing a ton of base work as we start to ramp up for the 2012-13 season.

I finished up a hard block of training with a little trip out west to attend the marriage of two of my good friends and teammates, Gabby Waddell and Tyler Derraugh. It was a beautiful ceremony and an awesome reception followed. It was great to see some familiar faces from the years I spent in Calgary and celebrate Ty and Gabby’s special day with them.
