Reno Senior Winter Games – snowshoeing

Yesterday I competed in the snow shoe race for the Reno Winter Senior Games. The race was over a 5km course at Northstar Ski Resort. We went pretty much up hill through the trees for the first half of the race and down hill for the second half. I finished the race in 56.08 minutes which was fourth overall and first in my age group (55-60). Of course there were only 12 people participating in the race and I was the only one in my age group. I think next year they will promote the event more so that they have more participants. I had a lot of fun and I plan to do it again next year.

There was a photographer there from the Sierra Sun. You can see her pictures including a close up of me here.

A couple of other people used my camera to take pictures. Here are some of them. You can see the rest on my Flickr account.
