it's time to say a huge "thank you" to all you guys who've put up with my bitching about my newly restored left foot! I'm happy to report that, thanks to Dr. Tony Kim in Wenatchee, I'm now able to really put some power into it, and am seriously working out each day on the trails here in Leavenworth. I can now ride a fully flat ski with full effort. Got zero endurance at this point, but the form, timing and balance has returned: I'm a happy camper!! When I'm babbling on about skiing, this video is what I'm talking about. No, I'm NOT Petter Northug, but for maybe 50 meters, I can ski like that!!
