Given that it is now 2013 and basically everything is connected to the Internet, a two month drought for an update is a little long. I am ashamed but hope I can make it up by doing some recapping.
Movember was awesome. So awesome in fact that the mo kept rocking it past the end of November and into December (partly just to end rumors back in Canmore). Team Snow Mos raised a tidy $3,552 between the eleven of us mobros. Great times. I’m glad that the entire month was fairly well documented, and despite my time lapse not really working out the end, there is always the next mustachioed season. Below are some shots from a few of us Snow Mos, including Gord, Devon, Wolfman and Ivan, striking our best mo-looks.
By the time I got home, shaved the mo, and settled back into the North American routine, the Canmore World Cups were next up. It's been five years since I last raced an Alberta World Cup, and I haven't forgotten the experience. Can't really beat a legion of fans cheering for the home team along with pretty much the entire town backing the international vibe throughout downtown. Despite the excitement, the 39th and 34th place in the classic and skiathlon races respectively weren't exactly the results I had been hoping for.
K-Country at its finest over the holidays
Between the world cups and now, I've been enjoying some time out in Kananaskis Country training and relaxing along with some racing out in Thunder Bay, ON and Duntroon, ON (current location) since the new year. These races out east are selection races for World Championships, so an update next week on how that went overall (next week, next month, same thing).
