Athlete Blogs: An Update
By:  Sheila Kealey   (2008/06/01)


Last year we posted a summary of athlete blogs and websites. Well, it seems like more and more cross country skiers are getting into the blogging arena, so itís time for an update.

Youíll find a variety of styles, formats, and frequency of updates, but generally some interesting reading and information that helps gain a perspective on the day-to-day lives of cross country ski racers at various stages of their athletic careers.

We will also update the  XC Ottawa links section to add some of these blogs, but here is a short summary of what is out there.

Happy Reading!
