Snowshoe race in Pittsfield, MA - very cold but thankfully no wind. Tough to gauge how much or little clothing to wear but I think I got it pretty good. Outer gloves came off for most of it, and took off the hat on part of the climb, but otherwise pretty good. Had the heavier winter tights on which are somewhat restrictive, so didn't feel like I could stretch out as much on flats and such. Distance/climb from GlenT's forerunner.
Passed a number of people on the climb, including Bob Dion, and was only passed by Bob as he flew down the ski run on the second half. Held him in sight, but never gained on him, but no one in sight behind be otherwise on the second half. Caught my toe twice in the final 1/4 mile and face planted gracefully when no on was watching. Much nicer to land on snow...

Trying to loosen up before the race, time includes some stretching time. Legs felt stiff and unresponsive both during warmup and during the race.
