|Ben Powering up the Troll Back in January or So|
What a winter this has been! I woke up this morning and the first thing I had to do was scrape another four to six inches of freshly fallen snow off my car! This is madness!
Of course I'm attributing this "wealth of white stuff" to the fact that I foolishly signed up for the Eau Claire Marathon on May 5th. I threw down the gauntlet to get some other Cyclovers to come and run it with me, but I don't think anyone has saddled up. The fact that I'm doing a marathon means I have to go running even when there are perfectly groomed, pristine ski trails out there. It's a shame...but I'm on a timetable.
I don't mean to complain, there is a huge upside to this weather. March is the best time of year to teach somebody else to ski. It's nice and warm out, and the trails are always fast, so get out there and enjoy it.
And those of you who are waiting for bicycle season have nothing to complain about either...we have fat bikes at the shop folks. Just bite the bullet and learn to ride in snow.
