Wahoo! Nothing like 8000' of altitude to get your heart rate up. Today's 10k featured bluebird 30F weather, perfect snow, and very little O2. I've yet to see any results, but I felt strong today despite my sea level blood. Over the last 2 years of travelling up to race in this thin air, I feel like I'm starting to figure it out. I feel stronger than last year too. I hope the results reflect that.
Tomorrow's race should be a good time. The Owl Creek Chase is a 20k point to point skate race. It sounds like we ski up and over a pass. 10k of solid V1 to start us off, with the steepest part at the top. Whew, gotta hit the good pace tomorrow!
