I started running on snowshoes when I was camping in the snow as a youngster. In those days, I wasn’t running for training or racing purposes. Rather, I ran on snowshoes as a way to get warm when camping with the Boy Scouts in the wintertime. I would create a track that ascended a nearby hill and do a few repeats every hour to keep the blood flowing and keep my body feeling warm. Nowadays, I run on snowshoes for three reasons: (1) to build strength in the wintertime (2) to keep competitive by racing during the wintertime and (3) to enjoy the serenity of being in the mountains and forests when snow is on the ground. I guess there is a fourth reason: I like that song from “Frozen”, Let it Go... I’m really looking forward to the 14/15 season of snowshoeing, with a focus to draw attention to the sport in Utah.
Run and win races in Utah, develop plans to organize an uphill race in Utah, and race at Nationals if it is in the Mountain Region.
