I have had a little mid-season break from racing after a planned training block and an unfortunate race cancellation. Thankfully I was able to add in a race to my schedule in preparation for the Birkie and that is one of my favorite races, the Owl Creek Chase. The Owl Creek used to be a regular stop on the Super Tour as well as the college race circuit. The race has become smaller and less competitive in the last few years but it always a fun event. I am super impressed with Steamboat Winter Sports Club Coach Josh Smulin who waxed and coached his juniors for over three hours in the morning before hopping in the race.

I was happy to have Caitlin aboard her flight to Europe and for myself to head home to Minneapolis and then to the American Birkebiener.
