We have been having lots of fun sitting around the dinner table discussing strategies to ace the 24 Hours of Sunlight next year. Lou and Louie salivate at the thought of modifying their gear to another level. And food for the race is definitely something we have to improve on.
But one thing I don’t need to change is what I wore: a light base layer by Isis, my favorite soft-shell pants by Cloudveil and the Marmot Evolution. The Marmot Evolution is a super lightweight, breathable, full zip jacket, perfect for skinning and touring. The fit is very trim, yet I could move around without feeling constricted. For my 2:00 a.m. lap, I added a GoLite vest that made me almost too warm despite the low temperatures.
Yes, my outfit is set for next year. And while it is disappointing to eliminate an opportunity to shop, maybe I can use the savings in my clothing budget to lobby Lou for a pair of snazzy racing skis like Polly has!
