Yay, I did it!

February 16th, 2010 by becky

It’s been a mild winter in Ottawa this year. We barely have any snow on the ground, and yet the cross country ski conditions have been amazing.  I’ve been out skiing more this year than ever – and I’m skiing longer distances more comfortably than ever before.

Last Sunday was a huge accomplishment for me – I skate skied up to Pink Lake in Gatineau park, a 6 km trip one way with 100-meters elevation gain.

When I reached the top of the hill huffing and puffing, I was rewarded with an amazing view. This picture is my proof that I did it!

    I always thought it was getting easier to get up that hill because of erosion. It doesn’t feel as high as it did the first time.
