Cast-A-Shadow Race report
So I eluded to the fact that I owed it to myself and the two readers that I have for this blog that I needed to put a race report in writing for the Cast-a-shadow 6 hour snowshoe relay that occurred last weekend. This race is always a blast and we scraped up a team consisting of myself, Brian Matthews and Tim Howland for the weekend. In years past, we’ve been vying for the overall win and to win some of those sweet Mountain Hardware fleeces that they give out to the division winners. This year, it was rumored that Mr. Jeff Beck and Nate Huckle would have a team and our delusions of going for the overall win was shattered as quickly as it tried to poke thru. Needless to say, the team wasn’t too stoked about slogging around in the snow for six hours, but we begrudgingly got our entry form in and were ready to roll for the race.
