Feathers and Fins

Jenny, Cory, Erik, Julie, and Jason all headed to Harriman State Park this past Saturday to compete in the first annual Feathers and Fins ski race. The day was sunny and warm but the snow still cold. A perfect day for a race. Julie and Erik competed in the 10k, one lap around the Park and finished 1st and 2nd respectively. Erik could have won but broke his pole at the 5k mark. Jenny and Cory competed in the 20k and Jenny finished a very strong first. Jason took a different route and did the 14k on classic skis (1st time). Oh did I mention a 14k wasn't one of the distances. But he had a great time. This race proved that mules really can ski!

Harriman State Park put this race on really well with lots of support and a really nice course. Did I mention good prizes! Hopefully in the future the size of the race will grow. The mules will be there again.
