A very quick update regarding today's Yeti Snowshoe Race.
Conditions were perfect with the sun shining bright for the second 1/2 of the 10k event. My team, North Shore Athletics narrowly edged out Team Helly Hansen, by just two seconds!!! I know what you're thinking, why in the world are you competing AGAINST a team Helly Hansen? Basically I started up Team North Shore Athletics, as I manage the store, and another HH sponsored athlete put together their snowshoe specific team. Everyone knows each other quite well and the 'friendly' competition is always concluded over a round of pints. It looks like it will be a tight race all season long with a few more competitive teams signed up for the next three races in Vancouver.
I'll post a short race report in the coming days.
