Thursday, January 25, 2018:  There they were, dozens of skis lined up at the Northland Arboretum.  Let's investigate.
Lots of high school cross-country ski course participants gathered from around the state.
It was get ready, get set......
And they are off!!!
The leaders were seen coming into the first hair-pin turn.
Then they were around the turn and off again.
Lots of concentration and effort.
They just kept working at it.
Just keep going, don't stop!
Uphill as well.  Not an easy task.
This was was a test of endurance.
Then they came into the finish line....5.5 kilometers (3.4 miles) and 15 plus minutes later.
They kept coming.
One fell flat on his face.  Ouch!
The Brainerd team was happy in the end .  The boys won the conference title and the girls came in third.
