i did it all for the t-shirt
my second (and final) snowshoe race of the year went significantly better than the first. i did not finish last, instead climbing up to third from the end. this may have had something to do with the fact that we three back of packers kept a nice, even pace the first 2.5 mile loop. that, and borrowing a pair of "racing" snowshoes. it's amazing how much easier the whole process is when there aren't ironing boards strapped to the bottom of your feet.
and much like the elusive 'runner's toenail', i can't seem to acquire 'snowshoer's bum'.
