Running - Snowshoe 1:00:00 [3]

Six tough loops of the Gula Stigen. It was -20C (-26 with wind chill) but ran half of the run with gloves off cause I wore lotsa warm clothing. Five laps easy and then final lap 'fast'. A whopping 7.54 for the new 2017 GS1000 record (almost double Neil Dobbs' all-time record). But I have a feeling AG! will take down Neil's record sometime this year.

Core/Strength 10:00 [3]

Skiing 1:40:00 [3]

Spectacular ski conditions at Georgian Nordic. Etoile and I started out in sunshine and ended in a (yet another) snow squall!

Cool article on Hamilton's ghost rivers and wetlands with the odd quote from me and my former student.

Dinner Lake. So. Much. Snow. A winter wonderland. Can you see my data logger box and solar panel at this research site? Nope they are buried.

Mega snow in Nobel. Gula Stigen start/finish cairns on the hilltop are hidden in the snow now (view from the Waddtage kitchen nook window).

Goal for 2017:

I turn 50 in 2017 and 50 days before that day Canada turns 150 (and Orienteering Canada is 50) so my BIG GOAL is to do 50 races (including 'epic training sessions') between Canada Day 2017 to my 51st birthday in 2018 (during the NAOC 2018 races in Yukon). The 50 races must include 5 different sports and at least one race will be at least 50km long (S, M, and L weekends count as 3 races). Races and 'epic training sessions' that I hope to include are:

Rockstar AR 2017
Lacloche Sihouette Trail Run (with friends hopefully this August 2017)
Xterra Parry Sound 2017 (first ever triathlon??, yikes)
COC 2017
Dances with Dirt 2017?
Wilderness Traverse 2017
Raid the Hammer 2017
Snowshoe Raid 2018
Sounder Ski Tour 2018
World Masters Ski-Orienteering 2018
Jukola 2018?
OMM Iceland 2018
Multiday O race in summer 2018
NAOC 2018

Other suggestions??
