Sweet. I needed to go to Pineland Farms this morning to tack my flyer for the Valentine's Day Race & Relay on the wall of the waxing room. What's a guy to do when at a world-class ski touring center and 3 hours to spare before a department meeting? Ski all the trails! This was by far my longest classic ski to date. I skipped the field trails, was around 21.5K with only the last half of the access trail to go, and feeling great. But then I had dropped my water bottle earlier and asked a pair of skiers about it, since they were coming from the direction I had dropped it. Yes it was by the yurt they said. So I added another 3K skiing down to the yurt and back. More significantly, I added all that climb and the combination of loss of kick wax and/or loss of muscle strength killed me. I'm beat...but really psyched about my 25K classic ski.
