I skated an easy 15K at Riverside with Hugh Coxe today before the middle school meet. Most, but not all of the trail was groomed, but it was lots of snow, which is always good. The MS race was lots of fun to stand by and cheer. James Demer's daughter Ava was smokin' fast, and one of the few kids (out of hundreds) who had a nice v2 alternate going (most of the kids, even many of the fast kids were using the v1 on the flat where I stood, which is typically used for steep hills only). Her dad must be a coach somewhere.
