Well done, and nice alternate training!
One of the (few) things I miss about not living further north any more - snowshoe races. This one is remarkably convenient (30 minutes away) and is held at a ski area which has managed to have enough man-made snow over the last four years that we could race on it.
I miss them too. None of those races we used to go to in Western Mass exist any more. Now I would have to drive two hours well into NY to get to any.
