Ski 2:52:24  27.1 mi (6:22 / mi) +1116m 5:38 / mi
Traffic? Some traffic on the way to Dublin. WTF.
But the skiing was superb. Hardpack, great skating, would have been fine klister weather. Was concerned about the 45˚ temperature on the way (didn't turn the car heat on until I got past Nashua, and my boots had nicely dried out) but then it dropped to 28 by the top of the hill, so no worries. Stayed on the competition side and was thinking about a Birkie-length ski. It was fast enough. The sunset was unreal (bright red sky through the trees) and then headlamp skiing, nice to forget that there's a pandemic with no one around. Four laps of everything, then a lap of just the race trails, then some loops up top, then finishing it out. World Cup conditions on the downhills: edge of control and fast.
Go lectured about Friday nights something something by someone who wishes they could leave the state of Massachusetts. Don't worry, mud season cometh.
