The Training Corner

Q: Hi Pat! When does the pursuit of good health become an obsession? Ok, I get it. I need to take care of myself. But tracking every breath I take, every morsel I eat, every step I take, and every minute of quality zzzz’s is not for me.

Standouts

The Lone Peak High School basketball season started off when a number of question marks – mostly Covid-related. What was never a question in the coaches’ minds, though, was that their teams would work together, work hard and learn.

A whacking good time

It is a little like hockey, but without ice skates. Instead people wear shoes with decent tread. Some purchase the special broomball shoes and others creatively come up with ways to jury rig an old pair of boots – by conducting surgery to create better traction.

Hold fast, skijorers

Cowboys, ski bums, and horses anxious to run: skijoring is a crowd-pleaser. The high speed, high action sport has been steadily gaining traction in western communities. There is no mystery as to why: A cowboy on horseback propels a skier holding a rope through jumps and gates – resulting in cringe-worthy spills and thrilling saves.

Lone Peak School basketball wrap-up

Both Bighorn teams had to overcome an incredible amount of adversity this year. Both teams managed to achieve a lot of great things as well as representing their school honorably. They fought through every single game and repeatedly put forth performances that they could be proud of. Great work this season everyone.
