REG Olympic Day

Yesterday evening I played pickup soccer again for the third time with a group in Lebanon. It’s getting more fun as I get more comfortable with the guys (and women when there are any that show up).

After soccer I did a short session at the Dartmouth Bouldering Cave. I had the place to myself.

This morning I went to the biathlon range and roller ski track in Jericho, Vermont to join the U.S. Ski Team’s Regional Elite Group camp of the best 16-19 year old skiers from the New England Nordic Ski Association (NENSA).

They were doing skate technique stations. One of their stations was to distance ski with me. In that way, I was able to ski with all of the groups and also do my own continuous distance session. It worked very well.

At the end of the session we took a group photo.

Last Friday was Olympic day, so we honored it today.

This afternoon I finished my five hour day with a two and a half hour mountain bike ride.

For the first time I rode the Trescott trails.

At first I could only find double track, which disappointed me.

But I did find this little guy.

Eventually I did find the excellent single track that I’d heard so much about.

Near the end of my ride the sun came out.

Here’s the view looking towards Hanover.

I was treated to a spectacular rainbow when I got home.
