2013 Season in the Books

The ST Finals hill climb went really well for me and I was able to gain back a bit of time on some of the other racers from the previous three races.  I skied the second fastest time of the day which put me in the money for the day which was really great.  I moved up from twenty first to tenth in the tour too which I am really happy with.  Hopefully in the future I can limit the time loss on the earlier stages of the tour.

Sharing the podium with Kris Freeman (1st) and Tad Elliott (2nd) Always an honor to be in the mix with these guys.

First set of podium flowers for the series.
Things just kept getting better with a 7 letter word in our scrabble tournament.
The 2013 race season concluded with the 50km Classic National Championship.  I really love the 50km races but had a rough day falling off of the pace early.  This is the longest season I have ever raced and it feels good to wrap things up and head home to Minneapolis.

Great to be back with the Boys and Girls Club kids.  They were excited to show me how many push ups and sit ups they now can do.  Spring is still waiting to come to Minnesota so we have mostly been inside. 

One the plus side, the skiing is still quite good.  This is the most snow I have seen in Minneapolis since I moved here.  Can you believe this is April 21st in Minnesota?

I finally had the chance to try skijoring.  Lahti, Caitlin and I went our and enjoyed the aftermath of the big snow storm.  We skied right from the house.  Can you tell who is happier?
