This past weekend I had my first races of the season.  Saturday was a 5k classic race and Sunday was a 10k skate.  It felt great to get a couple races under my belt and I had some solid results, including a second on Sunday!  It was pret...

GRP Limelights occur monthly and showcase members and/or people closely associated with the GRP Rowing & Skiing Teams. Lynn Jennings was one of the first people I met at the Craftsbury Outdoor Center. Little did I know that the woman, who came out from the faded Duck Blind to find her dog, Towhee, staring at [...]

 We skied some classic intervals under grey skies this morning. The temps rose overnight to around 40 so that was discouraging, but the intervals went well and the trails were relatively uncrowded.Skyler did some longer L3 intervals and the rest o...

I was a bit nervous about returning to Muonio this year after getting burnt out on the darkness and Arctic living here last November when the snow was very scarce.  I was at my breaking point last year and didn’t know if I could ski another loop in the dark around the short, icy, and [...]

November is up and ready on XC Ski Girl for those who are interested! http://xcskigirl04.blogspot.comThe US Team drove 3 hours from Muonio to Gallivare yesterday afternoon. We enjoyed a long sunset... and then it was dark at 2 or 3 in the afternoo...

Plenty of snow at the Methow Valley's Washington Pass.  Skiing on Rode Super Blue.  Snow falling...I was caught in the act:  applying grip wax in falling snow in a parking lot.    Good conditions for classic skiing; skatin...

The other day we skied at Lindley Park in the morning, then drove to Sun Valley by way of West Yellowstone. The first stop on the trip was a vantage point of Big Sky, which looked pretty triumphant at midday when we drove by.We stopped off at West brie...

Our week in Muonio is coming to a close. We hit the road for a "Lappish road trip" at noon.  We're headed three hours west (by van) to Gallivare, Sweden, the location of the next weekend's World Cup opener.  Now that we've gotten the first ra...

Here are a few photos from last week's stay in Bozeman. We're actually in Sun Valley now, and found some awesome snow conditions up at Galena pass this afternoon. More pictures from that (and our epic hike to Pioneer Cabin two days ago) will follow. Fo...

This weekend the domestic race scene kicks off with the West Yellowstone Super Tour.  After 6 months of preparation and training it is exciting to have the opportunity to show off the hard work.  I actually ski more on roller skis, ...

I spent a day off in Calgary. It is a surprisingly big city, with a population of about 1.1 million (compare to Boston with 625,000, or Dallas with 1.2 million). I found the downtown very clean, with free public transport, lots of walking space, support for the arts, interesting parks, and an extensive Chinatown with delicious [...]
