2009 City of Lakes Loppet

Me in my ski garb

This was my first ski event and it was a BLAST! The weather couldn't have been nicer, the crowd was amazing, support was spectacular, and the energy of the skiers was brilliant. I'm so glad I did this event. Plus, all finishers got a medal. How cool was that?

Official results are here. Not bad IMHO. The irony is I skied the 10K in about as much time as it takes me to run a 10K. This gives me a whole new point of view on pacing through an event.
