Before moving back, I decided that I would take up winter sports to ease the pain. I don't care for downhill skiing, so I looked into xc skiing and snowshoeing. Shortly before Christmas, I found these gems on EBay for 20 bucks.
I then discovered that people race in these. I like competitive events, so I signed up.
I have since run into 2 problems:
1) I fell flat on my face and broke my nose walking last month, how in the world can I run in these without the same risk
2) we've had almost no snow this year. The most snow in the Capital District area is on my property
Which makes it hard to snowshoe.
In short, winter hasn't forgiven me yet for hating on her and moving south. Currently she's being a cold jerk and not allowing for me to attempt to enjoy the season.
It looks like my snowshoe race will become a trail run, leaving me wishing for an early spring.
