cross country skiing

Ready to hit the snow on skinny skis? You will be after this podcast about cross country skiing basics!

Dimity and co-host Sarah Wassner Flynn talk to Anne Hinrichs, a cross country ski instructor and Birkebeiner finisher, and Emily Fischer, a marathoner and triathlete who is training for her first Korteloppet, a 29K ski race during the Birkebeiner weekend.

The group chat about:

—the differences between classic cross country skiing and skate skiing;
—what cross country skiing equipment you need to get started (step one: a strong core!); 
—how skate skiing compares to running—and training for a ski event compares to a marathon;
—and why conquering a downhill on skinny skis makes you feel like a rock star.
