Podium Finish at North American Snowshoeing Championship and "New Member" of the Macy Family

The snowshoeing season wrapped up yesterday with the always-competive North American Snowshoe Racing Championship, the final event of the Beaver Creek Snowshoe Adventure Series.

In the women's race, Sara Tarkington continued her dominance, but she had to work for the win due to strong charges from Lindsay Krause, who finished second.

My cousin, Ethan Pence, ran strong in the 5k for a third place finish among seasoned veterans.

Josiah Middaugh ran through bronchitis for the 10k win, and Peter Maksimow sprung off a 53-minute 10-mile road race last weekend for a great run to second.  I felt a bit sluggish and run-down, and I was happy to hang on for the final podium spot. 

In other news, Wyatt is happy to announce the addition of a new...

...camper to our family!

We're stoked for some road trips to mtb, multisport, and XTERRA races this summer.  Wyatt enjoyed a nice "stroll" up Mt. Falcon after this photo was taken.  As it turns out, the backpack would have been a much better option for that trail, which was still quite snowy in areas!

  1. Very motivative post! It is important to set right goals, especially in fitness. In order to move forward I need a lot of energy, and it is perfectly provided by military grade nutritionals. They can be easily ordered at h t t p: // Their pre-workouts are awesome. They give me quick boost of energy and enhance my physical capacities. I am gaining muscle and strength and achieve all goals I have set.
