Peter, rip it up. Have fun skiing with Kent and Reynolds and Tiernan if they are there. Don't let any of those dopesters mess with ya. Drop shoulder and push through! Racing with the Euros is a full contact sport, play by local rules.

Cheers,

Todd

First time "checking in". Had a moment there when I was like, ready to do a marathon or something. Then I went to the refrigerator and got a beer...and then another one. And then the feeling went away. Hopefully next I time I check in, I'll have something better to report.

Maysho, must be an incredible experience, way to go!

I googled up the Master XC world cup. The home page (link above) shows a photo that has me confused. These guys are racing on flat terrain and are in a sort of a telemark position. What's going on here? Anybody? (sorry, I couldn't figure out how to embed the photo).

Those guys are finishing a race and are trying to scoot a foot across the line for the win...

Oh, thanks Todd. I nordic ski a lot. But I've never raced; I guess that's obvious.

Nice, Peter! Very cool! Congratulations and good luck on the upcoming events. I looked and don't see the flatland tele skiers though.

Seven mile trailrun 'slick rock to hell' loop. Ten mile road bike ride. 5.9 chimney solo.

Thanks Todd and Jay,

Major Aerobic Workout action in Italy!

2 races down...2 to go
From Yesterday 10k Skate: It was an honor to line up in the front row with this guy...Gianfranco Polvara, 5 time Olympian, with many great results. He finished in 24.17, I came in 3.29 later, with 24 guys between us. I was really excited off the line, hung with the leaders for 2k, but kind of paid for it as the next 13 guys passed me in a pack and I couldn't quite hang on...M5 is a heavy field, kudos to US skier Kent Murdoch, finishing 4th! Mr. Polvara was my hero for about 3 hours, but a Google search shows lots of linkage to doping scandals...Hoping he changed his ways and is skiing clean these days...I did get the thrill of a dramatic finish, holding off a concerted attack by 3 guys, made the stadium spectators scream, and I got them by 3 seconds...

Rest day today, got to go ski at Campomulo, one of the top nordic resorts in the world probably...stunningly beautiful, 150k of perfect grooming with big views...Relay race tomorrow...I get the scramble leg, classic skiing...
Final 45k marathon skate on Thursday...

Ciao,

Peter

Ran 1 mile on the Hotel Tread after the last ski run to make sure my Spring Race Schedule is safe. Ran 4 miles the day I got back and 5.5 yesterday. Have a major HM in less than 4 weeks.

Jaybro, Maysho, you guys are animals!

I was a little excited yesterday to run on Venice beach for about 100-200 yards right after sunset, coupled with a 1 hour walk after dark amongst the street vendors closing shop. I made sure to eat lustily to counter whatever calories I may have burned.

XC/Tele into Yellowstone up the Snake River Canyon
Thanks for the info about Yellowstone. We are headed up that way to do some back country skiing and camping. Will check out that trail.

Today's run on incredibly beautiful West Cliff in Santa Cruz. Exactly 5 miles out and back from the start of West Cliff to Natural Bridges and back...and flat to boot! The surfers were out, the waves were beautiful. Just a gorgeous morning.
Looking towards Steamer's Lane.

I've got about 50 days skiing in so far this winter. Probably about 600km so far. I'm not real fast but it still feels good to finish with a sweat on.
I figure we have another month of skiing here before the spring melt.

Park at Flagg Ranch. Must've been 3 feet of snow along the Canyon Rim, my pole went down all the way. Just convoys of snowmobiles on the Roads.

Parenthetically, I got a ride in Utah a few years ago on a snomobile, right to the Timpanagos TH. It was my first ride.

But Moose Flats Junction was MOBBED. Looked like serious athletes. XC and AT setups. Maybe that was the advertised marathon.

Ran 8.6 miles (14K) this aft for 23.4 miles in the 4 days I'm back. I'm running well. Not gonna renew my International UCI license and swimming lessons are on hold as well. Maybe no Tri for me this year. Focus on running. Still have time to get into NYCM with my guaranteed entry though I said I wouldn't.

Hangdog, ultra, half marathon; ran about 11? miles on the slickrock/hell and back hybrid until my phone conked out with tracking software. Ran mile to the car, charged phone, ate a bonkbreaker, one of stich's chocolate gu, drank water & coffee and read a Harvey Pekar book for half an hour. When phone had a partial charge I ran up the sand flats road a couple miles and turned around. A fifteen mile mas o menos, mostly trail run, on a chilly overcast day; life is good!
