Welcoming the World as they Ship off to Boston

The Haydenettes and I could not be more excited about the upcoming World Championships in Boston!  In preparation for the competition we have been upping our practice hours and increasing the amount of program run-throughs during practice.  Our main focus had become consistency, so besides a few changes here and there we have been making sure each element of the program is clean and performed with an effortless look.
After winning U.S. Championships in March!
Two weeks before our scheduled departure for worlds we sat down as a team and discussed what we were excited for with the upcoming competition. It is very clear that we each realize that this World Championship is going to be unlike any other we will ever have the privilege of skating in. Our team comes from 10 different states across the country, but each one of us made Boston our home when we joined the Haydenettes.

This is going to be the first time many of our families and friends will be able to attend the World Championship event. I can only imagine what it will be like to have that much support in the stands. After skating in Finland and Sweden for the last two World Championships and seeing their extreme fans, it will be fun to see the United States give them a run for their money! It will be great to join Miami at the World Championships. I could not be more excited to skate for the same team as many of my former teammates once again, Team USA.

In the past few days we have begun to spot teams from around the world walking around the city. We cannot wait to join them and spend the week doing what we love, with all the people that we love around us!  

See you in Boston,
