My (updated) inspiration...

As a kid, my inspirations were comic books heroes and Jean-Claude Killy. Since ski has played such a high role and continues to occupies a major spot in my personal life, I'd like to stick with it as a frame o reference for my future inspiration.

Today, my heroes are the one that last as long as they can and, in so doing retain most of their stamina. One of them is Emile Allais a French ski champion, ski industry pioneer and visionary. This man is scheduled to turn 100 next February. I do hope he'll make it! Another one is an unknown French skier whom I learned about in my hometown newspaper and that still skis in his 100th year. This guy not just impress me, I admire them and want to emulate them!
