|Vasaloppet finish right outside our hostel window, in the rainy weather.|
|It's like Rasa is saying, "Break out the summer clothes!"|
Today the sun came out and we headed to the model event, joined by my parents (yay!) and Leif Åkerblom. The woods were pretty fantastic. I think that because you can see so far it's deceptively easy. At the same time, I don't think people will be making big mistakes out there. Small misses and bad microroute choices will be important to avoid.
Ross and I will be running all the qualification races; the middle, sprint and long. It's a similar system to WOC, but each country can enter 6 runners in each distance, instead of 3. Also, the top 17 in each heat go onto the finals, instead of the top 15. Will we make the finals? We both hope to, in at least one discipline.
