In Search of the Perfect Stride

Soul of Nordic by Joe Yelverton


When you are in the rhythm and glide of a good ski, every stride can seem like a miracle, as simple and pure as breathing. The motion is much like walking, but with extension and glide. Classical nordic skiing is a form and practice where, in order to excel, you have to find the balance point between full extension and falling. It’s a metaphor for life if you choose to see it that way. Finding the perfect moment to transfer your weight and maximize your glide before repeating the motion feels so darn good, its worth doing again.
