The ski racer went on to show her gratitude for the ongoing support of her fanbase and her loved ones. 

‘I didn’t do it alone though. I am so thankful to have had the support of friends, family and you guys, my fans. Knowing I had people supporting me helped me in my darkest hours,’ she wrote.

Vonn then spoke about overcoming hardships in order to continue her career as a professional athlete. 

‘Every day I tried to put one foot in front of the other until it eventually got me back to where I wanted to go…which was usually the top of the mountain,’ she recalled.

The former Olympian concluded by reassuring her followers that they would be able to get through their rough patches and grow as individuals in the process. 

‘We are all on our own paths, but if you’re injured or going through a hard time, believe in yourself and know that you will come out of it a better and stronger person. You got this,’ she wrote.

Vonn began her photoset with a shot of her carrying boxes of pizza while recovering from her July 2023 knee surgery.

She also shared a close-up snap of the area on her arm where her medical team operated during one of her procedures.
