Traveling Ted is a blog that takes readers along on my adventures hiking, canoeing, skiing, and international backpacking. Many blogs focus on one aspect of backpacking, but I tackle both the outdoor adventure side and international exploration as well.

Sharing is caring!

40th Birkebeiner -  start of the skate 5th wave

40th Birkebeiner – start of the skate 5th wave

This photograph comes from I believe the 5th wave of the 50 kilometer skate race at the 40th Birkebeiner cross-country ski marathon, which was held this last Saturday. I was in wave 6 of the classic race and because of this photo, I was late getting to the starting line.  Sometimes you just have to sacrifice when you are a blogger. Congratulations to all who persevered through a grueling cross-country ski race in Hayward, Wisconsin.
