If The Snowshoes Fits!

Posted: 01/14/11 | By Daniel

Recently a few of us got together in Big Bear for a pre-hike and were treated to blue skies and brisk temperatures, making for perfect snowshoe weather.

When I found out that Mountain Fitness Center was starting a snowshoe team with regularly scheduled training hikes, I was totally stoked. Then I found out that the hikes would be on Thursday nights, which really doesn't work for me since I teach two classes at the gym on Thursday nights. At first I was disappointed. Then more people joined the team and as it got closer to the February 5th event (Snowshoe the Bear), more random training sessions were scheduled making it easier to get some good group hikes in.

Recently a few of us got together in the middle of the day to pre-hike the 10k course and were treated to bright blue skies and brisk temperatures, making for perfect snowshoe weather. For any of you that are planning to participate but have been neglecting your training, you really should call Mountain Fitness and join the team or at least come train with us for free! It's much easier to get your legs in shape and ready for the race if you train with people that make it fun and that\'s what our hikes are all about.

Thursday night is not a good time for you, call the gym at 909-866-7020 and find out when the next random hike is going on. Maybe you can figure out which shoe fits!
