More Snowshoe Goodness!

Last weekend I had to miss the WMAC Dion Series race out in Pittsfield, MA in order to get the first Granite State race in up in East Madison, NH, which was a blast.  Kristin and I then did a relatively short snowshoe hike up the auto road to Cathedral Ledge in N. Conway (some photos we took) after the race before heading home.

Originally scheduled to be South Pond in Florida, MA, the WMAC had to change last week's race to the 1st Annual Turner Trail 4.3 Mile Snowshoe race (results) in Pittsfield State Forest, Pittsfield, MA.

CMS (in blue) had a great showing there with 5 in the top 13, including another win for Abby Woods. See dd's writeup and video here.

... 66 Finishers Total

There were also TWO very cool videos done (figures while I was elsewhere)... and I'm not even including anything Tivo may have come up with... Brad Herder (1st video below) and Jay Kolodzinski both hopped on the race video train and got some nice footage of winter-racing-goodness!  Check em' out!





Later today I will be packing for this weekend's trip out west w/ dd to attend 2 WMAC races.  The first being Greylock Glen out in Adams, MA and the other being Brave the Blizzard in Guilderland, NY.  There will also be some hikes up Brodie Mountain and some other peaks along the ridge and then some additional MA townbagging for dd on the way back.  It's going to be a fun weekend for sure...cold but fun...once my fingers warm back up I'll hopefully have some reporting and visual evidence to post...
