A month passed without a sign of living, don’t worry it means only that I’ve been quite busy..(or lazy.D)
After arriving home for Christmas I got sick and missed a few days of training.. and that’s why New Year was also quite peaceful. Symphony concert a la J. Strauss and listening to Wiener Walz was just a comfortable way of welcoming the new decade. and above all I was planning to race the day after the new year’s day so there were no point for harsh celebrating!.D
Temperatures has been down already a long time and also the q-races were just inside the limits, only ”-20″ on the startline. Stupid or not, I wanted to start! (not having any fever, though like in Canmore!!)
So considering the fact that I was not the topfit, I still ended up in sprint as 2nd with one penalty and only 9 seconds after my dear teammate Sarkku! well, that was enough anyways. She got the tickets to Oberhof and Ruhpolding. But Maybe it was only good for me to stay home and train.. don’t want to be embrassed again when not being the absolut fit^^ I have time to come there! Beware Germany!,)
I’ve been at school a little bit, doing all the great exams what I should have done in Dec…:D Thus far, I’ve survived good enough! and passed:D that’s enough. In addition to reading for the school, I’ve been training alone, well, basic training.. That’s all good on the way to the European Champs in March!:) I did actually one race here in Finland last weekend, shooting 0002(best shoot this year!)… pity, that the all the best girls are in Germany and not even competing in Finnish Champs this weekend! I’ll let you know the results later then.:)
In the end I was thinking about the higlights of the year 2009!!
January.. My first and last junior World Champs. Journey to Canada and all the new friends I got from there… I’ll never forget!:))
February I got my only sight of my swedish dear friends, when racing in the juniorlandskamp. The absolut MISS of the year is of course Sweden and Östersund. fyy, va jag saknar dit..:))
March was the month to get the first gold medal in Finnish Champs in the W21!:) Before that I had a lovely IBU-cup trip to Italy, and I got my first Sponsor from Germany! danke schön Firmengruppe Steinbach!:))
April is the month of recovering (and partying at the university(!!?):p

September; beginning of the schoolyear. Summer biathlon World Champs in Oberhof was the top!:)) getting the places 7th and 9th…:) And not forgetting the wonderful trainingcamp in Ramsau, two weeks!! continuing until 11th of October:) and I got to know one very special person, really worth of missing some teammeetings:)) Next year I’ll be skiing on the glacier!!:)
November is always the hectic start of the season and this year I also started very well so that..
In December I had my first World Cup race in Hochfilzen!! and then the last but hopefully last sight to Austria was made in Obertilliach… Unfortunately the things didn’t work out as I wanted. Well, Christmas comes always to the end and new friends what I’ve got on the journies saves the year:)
Absolut lovely song of the year: Oasis – Wonderwall
