Yay, Stephen’s first time skijoring! He chased AD and went like a champ. He doesn’t have the speed and power of the late Bazingadog, but got the idea quickly and listened to me when I told him to hold up on a downhill curve. Snow still minimal, but better than last time.

Log Run 21k. We met the 47k runners, which was perfect to keep up with the likes of Storm, Chad and Eddie once they had 26k done. Felt good, studded shoes were bomber on slushly boardwalks and lumpy rocks. Ran with Linden Spence a bit at the end- he’s fast and made it look easy. Great to see Bash at the end with the dogs, dry clothes and hot drinks. So good of DD11 to organize this, even if he was too injured to run.
We had to miss pizza at the Furnace Room brewery, but had Spirit Tree pizza and a beer from Furnace Room at home.
Woo hoo, skied to work with AD. Well, sort-of. It was borderline in Palgrave West, and pretty poor in Palgrave east where I had to de-ski several times and run in my boots. Still, a birthday ski is a ski!
Mix of hike and ski back by headlamp in really poor conditions. Late due to CPR course.The forecast flurries and squalls missed us completely. I’m going to have to re-attach/ replace 2 of the skins on my skis- skin skis are lousy rock skis.
