Lynsey Bialkowki skiing at 2014 Nationals in Corner Brook, NFLD

My name is Lynsey Bialkowski, I am 23 years old and I currently live in Parry Sound, Ontario.  I have skied since I was about 9 years old and I have kept skiing all the way through high school and university, which is now ending.  I have been working a lot of my classic technique but I still prefer to skate ski over classic. I love skate skiing. Elementary school skiing is what got me interested into skiing competitions, they were a lot of fun and I enjoyed ski racing.  What I like about ski races is that when you are on the start line and you know you’ve done all the training leading up to this point.   Your ready to let everything go to hammer out the race course to see how well the training has pulled off.  I think I deal with the pressure by working on my school assignments to take a little bit of the pressure off of racing.  This year I am currently skiing in my last year at university and getting ready for the ski season to start soon.  I plan to ski the rest of my life, I find it very enjoyable and it releases other stresses.
