Wow! That is not how I pictured that loppet at all. Thanks for taking us inside. You did well!
I'm sure the dentist would stuff two Laggan's brownies in his mouth at the aid station too. He doesn't like sticky candies or gummies but he's a total chocoholic.
Yup, agreed. Stay away from the sticky stuff and it's all good- what happens on the loppet stays on the loppet. PS, that's a great time for gnarly surface conditions.
awesome job and great report! That one must go on my bucket list!
Yes, I had envisioned two sets of tracks over decent snow the whole way, being able to focus on the skiing speed and technique. My references to "bushwack" are a bit exaggerated, but we were definitely skiing through light patches of shin-deep twigs at times.
Sounds like a fun race! Too bad Amik and I couldn't make it there to cheer you on....and hold your stuff;)
