OTM writer Jon Jonckers says this past weekend’s race might have been the best ever:

Unbeatable blue skies paired with crisp morning temperatures made the 31st anniversary of the Langlauf arguably one of the best yet. Thanks to a fresh four inch coat of snow last Thursday/Friday, the Langlauf course beamed white and crisp. The winning time was 29:21 for the 10k route – smoking fast! It’s tough to imagine better turnout or better conditions, but if I could make a suggestion I would tell the Langlauf committee to add kilometer markers throughout the course. There’s enough GPS pacing/training devices on the market for anyone interested in tracking their performance, and it helps to align yourself with course numbers. All in all, I had a wonderful time with my friends and peers, and I’m really looking forward to doing it again next year.
