I had a little time off this weekend, so I went down to the Halifax Commons to visit the Canada Games Oval during Marathon Skating International’s 25K and 40K events, totalling 62.5 and 100 laps of the 400m track respectively. I couldn’t complete one of these events right now, but some of the folks participating in these two races are in such fine shape they made it look easy. I watched much of the 25K event held on Saturday. Sunday morning’s 40K race was postponed for a little bit due to blizzard like conditions while the organizers cleaned off the ice. I stayed as long as my frozen toes would let me.
