Off to the Races

My volunteer stint as a first aider for the Olympic Cross Country Selection Trials is over... but here is a cool shot of the finish line (a bit before the start obviously). It was a lot of fun and I think I met at least 100 people, all of whom were pretty nice and interesting and many of whom were very curious about life in Baker Lake. It was also pretty neat to watch really talented folk ski and I've finally caught a touch of the Olympic spirit. I have a pretty bad track record for following the Olympics. The summer, I was usually at camp in the the winter I don't tend to have much access to TV. Probably, this year I won't see much of the Olympics.... lacking a television, but its hard to say.

I'm currently being educated about the recent Stanley Cup history of the Toronto Maple Leafs. I should probably listen, as there might be a quiz later.

Hmmm, looks like the Nordic Center. We're headed out there on Xmas day for a ski. Nothing better than heading outside on Xmas day in my mind. Its supposed to warm up from the recent "briskness" we've had!
