I needed some more winter training, so decided to go back to Crater Lake. This time I went for speed and was able to lower Jason Hadrath's time (13h 45m, https://fastestknowntime.com/fkt/jason-hardrath-crater-lake-rim-drive-or-2020-02-17) from 5 days ago by 2h 27min.
Compared to the outing with Danielle earlier this month (https://fastestknowntime.com/fkt/christof-teuscher-danielle-snyder-crater-lake-rim-drive-or-2020-02-02), the weather was fantastic. There was about a foot of soft snow on long stretches, so the Northern Lites racing snowshoes were way too small for those stretches. Jason's trail was mostly gone.
I believe this was my 7th circumnavigation.
You are an epic human being, Christof!
I love that yet again you came out and kicked my ass on something I took from you.
it is such a beautiful day out...totally worth it for the training :)
congrats. I would love to take tomorrow off work to go after you again, but I don’t think I my body will let me go after you in such short order. We’ll see.
Respect. Admiration. And don’t you worry, I will find another way to get you in the future ;) game on!
