Bretton Woods

I really wanted to get in a bit of xc skiing before the winter was over, so for my birthday we headed up to Bretton Woods. This is our favorite xc ski area. Here's what my friend Rob L. has to say about BW: "Bretton Woods is the perfect place to mix cross-country skiing and cross-currency hedging."

I didn't have time to wax our skis yesterday, so I tried to get them done as quickly as possible this morning so we could head up. The weather ended up being much warmer than we expected, and I didn't use the right wax for the mushy mess around the xc ski center. But once we got into the woods and a little higher up, the snow was fine. We had a great time, and I always enjoy having the chance to xc ski or do an epic ride someplace warm on my birthday.

You may not know this, but ninjas are just like the rest of us. Sometimes they like to go xc skiing.

I was overwhelmed by all the calls (from as far away as Iceland and Hawaii) and emails and e-cards and FB messages, as well as the lovely dinner than Rach and Neilie made for me last night and the birthday pie from Kris and Brad. Thank you so much. I am truly fortunate to have such wonderful people in my life.
