Mesabi was definitely big fun. It was cold, but not too bad in the sun. Once the sun got low behind the ski hill it felt a lot colder. Temp was –20 at 8:00 am but warmed quickly to –2F at the start of the boys classic races. Kick and Glide waxing was good and the athletes came back from their races happy. Our athletes did pretty darn good and we are very proud of each of them. I have attached results and we can talk about them at practice. Good work all! Thanks to Kathleen, Paavo and Sasha for all of their hard work making fast skis!
Many thanks to parents that drove and chaperoned: Lori Goetz, Hope Covington Schwartz, Matt Waite, Deb Swenson, and Mark Scott. It was very nice to have parents drive up to spectate and support. I saw the DeLaundreaus, and the Doslands. Thanks to the Goetz family for arranging for us to stay at the church. We are very lucky to have such supportive parents.
