“Got the 10km out of the way this afternoon. ½” of fresh cold slow snow blanketed Birch Hill, but I SKATED anyway…only my second race of this season, my first was the Skiathon. My time….47:47, and that was with MUCH EFFORT! And PAIN, as I have not been skating much at all. So, just the 30 and 50k to go. I will wait for faster snow for those two. I measured the SONOT KKAAZOOT 10k on my Garmin GPS @ 10.08 kilometers…pretty close. Ended up double poling quite a bit. Most definitely the hardest effort this season.
We also received the face masks today. I’ve given out about 30 of them already! I’ll be working out some method of distribution.”
Congratulations, Bad Bob! You’re our first skate skier and the fastest submitted time (so far) for the virtual 10 km Denali State Bank Sonot Kkaazoot.
