It's been awhile since I've done a longer ski race (25km+), with all my time not having a job since finishing school back around Thanksgiving I have had lots of time to ski. All long and slower pace making short ski races not go by very quickly, but the longer ones are where it's at. Thus I signed up for the City of Lakes Loppet just to see what would happen. Naturally, as I prefer classic that had to be the way to go. After being placed in the second wave for some odd reason, I managed to coerce someone to bump me up to wave one. And well, things went well, felt the good until the finishing stretch, where I had neither kick or glide, but hey, what can you do. I was able to hang onto 5th for the whole race, felt pretty good about that.
