Thank you for joining me to take in the surroundings! Let me take this opportunity to introduce myself and tell you some fun facts.
My name is Christina. I live in Salt Lake City, UT. I am originally from a small town in Northeast Pennsylvania. One might as, “How did you end up in UTAH?!” Well, I thank my parents for that. They signed my brothers and me up for ski lessons when I was 5 years old, and I never looked back. I started ski racing a few years after getting into the sport, and continued that through my college career. Those childhood ski lessons ignited a fire and I spent a lot of my time figuring out how to ski as much as possible. Since college, I’ve found a way to continue enjoying my passion by living in mountain towns.
Christina, you promised fun facts. Nothing so far has been THAT fun. OK, fine – here you go: I am left handed. I absolutely love puns (you’re welcome in advance). I can bench press 150 lbs. I love being outside and will try just about any activity if it involves being in the snow, wind, sun, or rain. I’ll take it all!
Now for the blog: A blog, Christina? What’s the motivation? What are you going to write about? As you can probably already surmise, I LOVE WORDS. And I frequently type an entire paragraph into a Facebook post then delete it because I don’t feel like it’s an appropriate forum. I needed a place to write my thoughts and share them.
The topics will be random and range from my outdoor adventures and views from the literal summits to my opinions on current news stories to my fleeting thoughts. I am a passionate person and get amped up about things, so I hope to keep you entertained. I look forward to hearing your thoughts and opinions as well so please send comments!
