Blizzard training on Christmas Eve!!

Storm training...check! Crossing two 1000m+ mountains at night with a 24m/s head wind covering the trail in deep snow, in a total white out blizzard, with heavy snowfall and temps below -25oC, was a really tough run (for me at least). Super leading from Toivo and Lakrits, kept the team on what was left of the trail, passing the markers regularly and made great time. All the dogs worked really hard and seemed to relish the weather as a challenge. Everyone got big hugs and ate lots of meat snacks when we got home!

Night Run

Great night run with the dogs! Had to do the last 20km with no headlight as the battery died and my spare was to cold. With a full moon and a -25oC clear starry sky, it was a beautiful night to run in the dark.
