So this post is going to be just everything that I had on my camera on Birkie day. I don't have any images of people skiing, but I have a pretty good accounting of everything that happened before and after the race (which is where the real stress and fun is). So, enjoy these pictures and, as always, if you have any more, please send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I always put my skis in a ski bag and keep them with me in the lodge. I get too frantic on Birkie morning and I just don't want to be left somewhere without my skis. Also, I put big awesome CyclovaXC stickers on my skis so they don't get confused.
Well, that's it for the 2012 Birkie! It was an awesome day, but I still need to lose 20 lbs and get serious about racing this thing! See you all on the starting line next year!
