What’s your mind-set going into Indonesia? Obviously, I’m pretty fresh back on the water. I don’t have crazy high expectations. I’m going over there because I had such a poor season. I just want to make sure I don’t get lost on the world-ranking list. I don’t think it’s necessarily the best time for me to be going to a tournament, but I had plans of going all summer. When the doctor told me I could ski, I was gung-ho — I really wanted to go. My ticket’s booked and I’m headed over there. I’m just going to have some fun and see how it goes.
Will you be competing in jump and slalom? Unfortunately, my doctor advised me to take it slow getting back onto my jump skis because of the strength and balance in my legs. So instead of going over there and having the possibility of injuring both of my knees, I decided to not jump. I’ll just be slaloming.
What are some key things you’re going to take out of the 2012 season and into 2013? It is going to be a new year. I just need to erase 2012 (laughs). No, I mean I am taking things from it. I had a lot of defeat in 2012, and I am not good with defeat. It bogs me down. I need to kind of let go of everything, get in the gym, get strong, get my head back on straight, and come into 2013 like the champion that I am!
