Things were looking up for Marshall with a pair of scoring results at the opening two World Cup downhill races in Lake Louise, until the back trouble that's been haunting her for three seasons came back with a fury.
She went toe-to-toe with it until January, then said "no mas' and headed stateside to get things figured out for good. It didn't involve immediate surgery, but she did rock a traction device and then had a microdiscetomy on two levels at the end of May. During the down time, she worked on her blog and in a Park City bakery. Definitely check the blog if you want to get instantly hungry. Baking quickly became a passion, and she and teammate Megan McJames started their own catering company called Sister Sweet Tooth.
By spring, she was cleared to start sliding around again and kicked things off by doing some skinning on a new telemark setup put together by her dad.
I love watching people come into the bakery and be taken aback by the amazing, comforting, homey smells that are rising from the ovens. Smiles emerge on their faces and they seem to become more at ease. I am surrounded by hard working positive energy and I am in awe of everything that is going on around me. The Bakery makes all the breads and desserts for five amazing restaurants here in Park City. Between the endless sheets of rosemary focaccia bread and the chocolate decadence cake, I have a lot to learn and I'm looking forward to every minute.
