I arrived in Zürich today to begin my ten week European comeptition season. I will only be here for a few days before heading off to competitions in Fränkisch-Crumbach (Germany), St. Pölten (Austria), Bern (Switzerland), and Bergen (Norway) in June. My schedule for July is not yet finalized, but I will likely be doing a competition or two in the former Yugoslovia before returning to Zurich for the Swiss Championships on August 1st. A complete schedule is can be found on the site. Right now, I’m just focused on recovering from the tiring flight so that I can set a new season’s best on Sunday.
