“Well the times gettin’ hard for you little girl I’m a hikin’ and a bikin’ all over this world!”
AHHH! It’s race day!
Yesterday we got to Yellownife and met up with Marianne and Craig (Mike’s sister and brother in law)
Backyard at where we are staying!
We went out and tested out our snowshoes right away (we might need them in the race- they are a mandatory piece)
YAY I can do it!
BEST support system you could EVER ask for!!!! <3
Then we went to the pre race orientation and the filled us in on things like how to deal with frost bite, hypothermia, if you fall in a lake, wild life, snow blindness, etc…
My bib happens to have my favorite number in it (#27)
Mike and his race bib!
Back at the house Marianne made us a delicious meal last night!
The most yummy veggie lasagna! (I’m getting the recipe!)
I thought the glass of wine might help me forget what I am about to do….. but it didn’t! ha
Some of our mandatory gear
THIS IS THE TERRAIN I AM ABOUT TO COVER!
OK- here I go! wish me luck!
Happy Saturday! Stay warm……
