After years and years of not racing, I thought it was about time. Through bear infested woods we ran, under the northern lights we sort of ran, they were too amazing to keep pace, through throwing up I stumbled, but thanks to a great support van water wasn't far behind, Gorgeous sunrise in Canada, followed by blue skies for the finish line. Those of us who stayed behind to enjoy the day went to the Takhini hot springs and mingled with yukoners, trespassed on a farm and played some frisbee while enjoying the second sunset all summer, ate some rasberries, enjoyed some sushi and sake, and drove home. All in all, one of my favorite days here in Alaska/Canada. Love you all.
