We [heart] Bert Larsson!

Our own Bert Larsson took home a bronze in the 5k classic at World Masters.  Here he is, second from the right, looking adorable in this picture of the Swedish team.



And for perspective, here is a purely awesome little video from the 1930 Vasaloppet -- 1930!  Bert is probably in this race somewhere.  Everything in here is amazing and wonderful, but particularly check out the men waxing their skis over an open fire!
