It finally snowed! After a snowless 2011-2012 winter (not counting “Snowtober“), the powdery white stuff has covered the ground enough to start cross country skiing.
I am new to this sport, but am excited to learn and improve my form. Tonight, using loaner skis and boots, I went out and tracked around Derryfield Park here in Manchester, NH. Thankfully it was dark and no one could see my graceless trek around the field. I got in three miles and feel invigorated. It seems like a great winter cross training activity to compliment my miles.
Now, I just need to get my own gear and learn some proper technique.
