Don’t Surrender – Conquer!! Snowshoe Racing

Posted by Filed Under: Races & Racing, Video

I have been wistfully wishing for spring but chances are if you live where it’s cold you are probably dealing with piles of the white stuff. Don’t fight it – strap on a pair of snowshoes. If you are lucky there will be a snowshoe race somewhere near you.

Look here to see a video of some winter time run for runners

I found myself at the age of 38 the single full time working mother of 3 small children. I took up running because I figured I could get the biggest benefit in the least amount of time. Swearing never to run a marathon I found myself going out for a 4 - 6 mile run several times a week. I ran my first marathon 6 years later. Five years after that I ran another and then the next year another. Then I got bit by the triathlon bug so now I split my time between running, swimming and cycling. This year I think I'll run another marathon. And next year - who knows?

    ha! that’s great! I actually know the Guinness World record holder for the fastest mile in snowshoes (5:56). I run with him often.

    The Trail Monsters, a local trail group, have some snow shoe runners amongst the ranks. I haven’t bought any, nor cross country skis, so I stick to trail shoes and breaking ground. Builds good strength, I’ll give it that. It’d still be nice to have that claw from the snowshoes on some of the hills though…
