Moose Mountain and Whaleback

Tomorrow, January 16th, Feel Good Farm 9K Snowshoe Race, located Lyndeborough, NH, will be the second race in the Granite State Snowshoe Series. It looks to be a fun and challenging race. 9k is a long distance to run on snowshoes and as far as I know the longest yet to be part of the snowshoe series. It also runs up and down Moose Mountain four time so it is sure to be a hard 9k. Currently, first overall female and8th place overall male, Amber and I hope to have a good race tomorrow.
However, I won't let a fun new opportunity pass me by, so before tomorrow's 11:30 race, I will be doing Winter Wild #1 at Whaleback Mountain at 7am. Put together by Chad Denning, a former member of the now defunct EMS Adventure Racing team, Winter Wild is an uphill racing series that starts and ends at the base of a ski area-having to race up AND down it. You can choose to be in one of four categories:
1) Open category (stabilizers, running shoes, snowshoes, yaxtrax, etc), 2) Track Skis (lightweight skating/diagonal gear) 3)Telemark (full metal edged skis with a 3-pin or cable binding) or 4)Heavy Metal (alpine skis, randonee bindings, plastic boots). I plan on racing in the Open Category in either running shoes, probably my Brooks Cascadia's, or in a pair of Stabilicers. For anyone interested in joining me, the website is:
