Today we raced in the Birkie Elite Sprints in Hayward, Wisconsin. It was a little bit like the sprints on the Common before the marathon, but only two skiers raced at a time, and the cones were realllllly close to each other. I went in the very first heat, against my former Dartmouth teammate Audrey Weber, and we got tangled up. In the end, I was out after one heat, as were Matt and Ollie. But Alex outlasted us, beating Matt in the first round before losing to Mikey in the next go-round. None of us were in the money but it was pretty fun.
