After a short and very packed week including lots of sleep, I had to somehow find the rhythm after being back from Columbia. There were two days of school and education as well as the preparation for the start of school on Monday… after we closed the shop, we travelled to Grindelwald.
Unfortunately, on Saturday morning, I couldn’t get the planned massage I had looked forward to all week and my body was feeling tired. I was expecting a tough fight with Ariane Lüthi and Cornelia Hug. Not a good omen and on top of this we were caught in a traffic jam and I could hardly sit in the car. Despite this, we somehow arrived and I managed to get my starting number.
The alarm went off at 4:15am, time to get up and have breakfast with a focus on the 7am start.
Just before the start I had a short interview with the team from SRF TV as they have come to the race to cover me and record for a later segment on Sportpanorama.
