In preparation for the 2011 National Snowshoe Championships in Cable, WI I bolted (direct mounted) a couple pairs of John’s running shoes to his snowshoes. This is nice as it eliminates the often troublesome bindings and provides a much better connection between the runner, snowshoe, and trail.
They ended up working well for John as he finished 3rd in his age group! He was also kind enough to send a thank you note:
Thanks so much for the last minute work on my snowshoes. Using the larger snowshoes made a difference and the set up couldn’t have been better. I should be set now for all conditions. Will have to start riding my bike and thanks for all the work on it also. It’s really nice having you right here in Phillips John!
