X-Country Skiing

Top front row in a doubledecker bus to Kotka.

Cross-country skiing is one of the best cross-training methods in winter. However the weather in Helsinki wasn't great for that so we traveled east to Kotka. There we found everything just right: plenty of snow and sunshine, below-zero temperatures, and good tracks in gentle landscapes.

Fantastic sunrise from our balcony.

Fabulous skiing in Kotka.

Perfect skiing weather!

Following some animal tracks just before sunset.

Magnificent dawn.

Cross-training at its best.

Skiing in the shadow of big trees.

Clear blue sky.

Bonus video shot with GoPro Hero4 at 2.7K (please adjust settings for best quality).

TP those are great shots. Obviously the freezing weather is normal for you.

I was wondering if you could do me a favor and nominate willrunlonger.com to a blog contest at:

All you need to do is post a comment at the site with a link to my blog. Thanks! I really appreciate this if you can do it.
