This past weekend was full of sporting events to watch and to compete in here in Lillehammer. It all started on Saturday morning with the opening races of the Biathlon World Championships in Pyeongchang, Korea, which turned out to be a historic day for the Norwegians (their four starters placed 1-4). Later that day I went outdoors for a sunny extra-blue classic ski to watch the World Rally Championships take place on the roads in and around Lillehammer. On Sunday, I completed my first ski marathon, which was the longest race of my life thus far. So yeah, it was a great weekend. Below is a picture of my teammates and I at the start of the race.
