Don't Dream it's Over, calling it a career.

"I don’t dream of winning the Olympics anymore, but I still dream of going, as a journalist this time.
But before definitely going on I felt the need of writing the words “the end” and despite my status on the FIS site says active, I officially am calling it a career."

I know it's a long piece and probably you don't really care much, but after seeing the races today and realizing that it is not my world anymore, I felt the need to write about my life as a skier and officially call it a career.

It's kinda irrelevant, but you look really hot in your skiing tights

Your new career will be so much easier on the body, but I'm sure you'll miss the rush of the sport. Bittersweet.

Re: Don't Dream it's Over, calling it a career.

You moved out of home when you were 15 to go to a ski college? Wow, impressive!

If you ever need a reference on how much of a tennis fan you are, you have a whole forum behind you. Good luck with your new found career. Sometimes the best decisions we make in life are the hardest.

Re: Don't Dream it's Over, calling it a career.

I did not expect as many compliments for something I didn't even read twice...it just really felt like i needed to take it out at some point.
