Skiing at the World Criterium Races

A Little Personal Info

My photo
Hi, I'm Brad! I love the great outdoors and enjoy skiing. This blog is inspired by some of my many life experiences and world travels. I have a Ph.D. from the University of California, Davis and work to find solutions to some of the world's challenging energy and environmental problems. In 2011, I went back into competitive snow ski racing and won the USSA National Speed Series (Downhill and Super G) title for my class (M5). It was an amazing and fun year of skiing. I also enjoy being around all kinds of animals from horses to dogs and love to spend time at Tahoe, my little farm near Cool or traveling somewhere new around the world. I have been to Nepal and seen Mount Everest, to Alaska's Denali, the Matterhorn in Switzerland and even Maroon Bells near Aspen, CO. Thanks for stopping by and checking out my website.

Time with Friends

Time with Friends
By Bradley Meister

Her World Cup season is on full go
The champion skier flys from snow to snow
Winning many, losing some
Training daily, faraway places
But back home you’ll always have
Fun times with friends

Red and blue gates, they sometimes look the same
Some people seem to forget her other life
No one sees the hours in the gym
There are no short cuts to her wins
But back home you’ll always have
Good times with friends

When the very early morning comes
She’s out the door and always on the run
First the work-out and then the rest
It probably seems like it never really ends
Grab your gear girl, cause now it’s off to race again

World Cup she's not through with you yet
Maybe at 63 wins, she might just be content
She still has one or two more Olympics in her mind
And more World Championships will come with time
But back home you’ll always have
The best times with friends
