Another pretty good week in the books, finished with 74 miles for three straight 70+ weeks in January. I’m averaging just over 10 miles per day so far this year. This week ended with my first two snowshoe race weekend in about a year. I definitely felt it! The first race at Greylock went well. The field was deep with CMS runners and I was happy to take home 5th place, only 51 seconds out of first. Double-J and I snuck in a climb up Brodie mountain after the race before heading off to NY. The second race was tough, I was beat before we even started. I ended up with my highest place this season (4th) but probably my poorest race this year. I was over 3-minutes behind Jim. We bagged Pelham and Belchertown on the way home along with Mt Lincoln (fire tower). All in all a good week.
2 races (5th & 4th)
Old pic for this week is from the NCAA D2 XC champs in 1984. I'm struggling in taking 12th place. Old timers might recognize #219 in the background.
