February is flying by. I have been racing less and training more, in preparation for the World Championships in Finland. I begin my travels tomorrow via Moncton, Toronto, Amsterdam and Helsinki. The weather looks good, so I am fairly confident that I will arrive on time, though I’m not sure I can say the same about my skis. The risk of a missed transfer goes up with each flight connection.
I have also spent more time with my new compact mirrorless camera, and am starting to learn how to use Lightroom software more effectively. I still have lots to learn, but I’m fairly happy with the quality of images I’m producing.
Finally, I spent this morning taking pictures at the final race (20km Skate) of the Canadian Masters Championships. I am still one year too young to compete as a “Master” in cross country skiing. It was strange not to be competing, but I enjoyed moving around the course taking pictures.
Looking forward to Finland and I’ll try to take some pictures of the action so that I can share those in March. For anyone interested in following the results, I will be racing a 10km Classic qualification race on Feb. 22, and the Skate Sprint on Feb. 23.
