I am 33 and consider myself fortunate because many kids are hit with FA at a much younger age and are affected much more severely than I have been. This was our reason to race. We were doing it for the thousands of individuals and families affected by this disease.
Once again we skied at Liberty, near Gettysburg. We go there often, because we have a lot of good friends there and it is the closest drive from Washington DC. But its sister area, Whitetail, is also excellent, with some longer, steeper runs.
