While out in Minneapolis last week for interviews, etc. etc. I brought Chaco along and entered us in their annual winter festival, the City of Lakes Loppet. Never having competed in a skijoring race before, we went for the Chuck and Don’s Skijoring race, a “fun run” of sorts.
Originally to be held as a tour of the lakes within the city, the event was relocated due to thin slushy ice on the lakes and quite frankly, no snow.
The new course was in a park with snow-making capabilities and it was a blast. As the locals called said, “there’s a lot of terrain.” I enjoyed the ups and downs of the hills familiar to the east-coast, although my lungs weren’t used to sprinting up and down them.
