Christmas and Racing

Christmas break is always a nice time to catch up with family and friends, eat great food and also go for some nice easy skis on familiar trails. This year that is just what I did. Despite the cold weather, I was able to get in some nice longer skis in the middle of the day when the sun was shining.

We also got to take place in a race back home in memorial of one of the Whitehorse CC Ski Club's main visionaries Don Sumanik. Full story here from the the Whitehorse Star.

We are now in Thunder Bay, Ontario taking part in the World Junior/U23/Senior Championship Trials. Yesterday we took the start line for the 30k Skiathlon. The race went okay for me and is a step in the direction I am striving for. I am optimistic and confident for the next races to come. As far as my month long racing tour, One race down, ten to go!
