Ruka 10k Skate Pursuit Start

It was another chilly one today. We had to be flexible as the race kept getting delayed and finally rescheduled for the afternoon. It's always hard to warm-up, have to stop, go back home and then start over again and in the dark....I am happy I managed to deal with the punches and make the best of it. I felt really good or as good as one can racing in so many layers ;), but struggled with my tactics and confidence today. I am very happy to remain in the mix and to know my body is there, but have some to gain on the mental side. It was a good first weekend for me and really gave me a good starting point. I know where I am now and where I need to go to meet my goals later in the season. I am working with a new wax technician this season to add a little more chaos into the mix, but am feeling good about our start! I know we will be dealing with some subpar snow conditions so that will be the next hurdle to tackle next week!
