I’ve been really impressed with Nate’s ski training and racing this winter, which ended this Saturday at the Birkie.
|Nate winning the 35k skate at Mora!!!|

It always does amaze me how beautiful Nordic skiing can be. Individuals gliding over cordoroy-groomed snow, powerfully pushing off with each pole plant and diagonal stride (or double poling, striding uphill). Absoluely gorgeous.
|I’m the first “cow” in line, SO nervously handing Nate his gel at OO (aprox 1/2 way into the race). You can see Nate’s arm in the far left. This is stressful!|
|Nate getting his feed from me… yikes.. glad it worked. There were a lot of Gear West skiers that missed their feeds at the same location… does that make getting feeds from cows more reliable? Or just more ridiculous looking? 🙂|
