Tim heads out to the Dion Snow Shoe race with a very excited but a little crazy group of runners. This is first race in the 2009 WMAC Dion Snowshoe series. Yes, in the North East they actually like the snow. I know it’s a little hard time imagine, sitting here in L.A.
In this episode of the Running Raw Project: The 17th and final race in the 2009 WMAC Dion Snowshoe Series took place at Catamount Ski Area in Hillsdale, NY. A very challenging course was laid out on the ski slopes, which included a nonstop 1,050 foot climb. Continue Reading / See Additional Photos
Our super G athlete friend Tim VanOrden (the running raw guy) could be described as obsessive, energetic, and extremely dedicated. But I would say the best description would be “Giver”. Yes Tim can’t help himself, he gives and then goes out and gives some more. Here’s an example, Tim doesn’t just worry about getting himself psyched about tackling a difficult run in the fridgid snowy woods of Vermont. Nooo, not Tim, he is also worried about your two fat storage tubes you call legs. Yes, I mean you, sitting there in front of your computer. He wants to help you become a snow running, raw food chomping, super “G” athlete too. So, what does Tim do? He figured out how to bring all of us along with him. Yes, some how packing all of us into his pocket ($10 Jacket), he heads out to the snow packed trails and begins to entertain and teach us a thing or two about how fun and good for us, running really is. Even in a snow covered wonderland like Vermont.
So, I want to thank Tim, personally for hauling all of us along, I have been enjoying the rides.
In this Running Raw video, Tim teaches us the value of a good pair of cheap ($4) snow cleats which fit on your running shoes. Plus, he clues us in on just how beneficial cross country skiing really is. So, get your right hand on your mouse and your left hand around a green smoothy and click play. Tim is about to whip us out and teach us a lesson.
