A Successful Weekend!

A very quick update regarding today's Yeti Snowshoe Race.

Conditions were perfect with the sun shining bright for the second 1/2 of the 10k event. My team, North Shore Athletics narrowly edged out Team Helly Hansen, by just two seconds!!! I know what you're thinking, why in the world are you competing AGAINST a team Helly Hansen? Basically I started up Team North Shore Athletics, as I manage the store, and another HH sponsored athlete put together their snowshoe specific team. Everyone knows each other quite well and the 'friendly' competition is always concluded over a round of pints. It looks like it will be a tight race all season long with a few more competitive teams signed up for the next three races in Vancouver.

I'll post a short race report in the coming days.

Hey Gary. Great blog, I've been following it for a while. Always been curious what breed of dog is Roxy?

Thanks so much for the compliments!
Roxy is a mutt, lol, but to the best of my knowledge she is mainly a cross between a Husky and a Doberman. I was just lucky enough to walk into the local SPCA on the right day and scoop her before anyone else did. Even as a pup she was always incredible well behaved...listen to me ramble on about my dog! She's awesome, I love her!!
