|The Alpenglow 20k freestyle
(skating allowed) race was originally scheduled to run a few weeks
earlier (January 9). It was postponed... Due to SNOW. OK, it was a total
blizzard. CalTrans was closing the freeway over Donner Summit and it
would have been a horrible day to skate.
So, anyway, we had the race a few weeks later (February 13) and I'll spare you the worst of the details - here's what's left:

Happy to be alive... even though I lost to Louise Wholey, AGAIN!!!

fellow Lone Clone cabin mate, Derrick. That's him wear bib #230. Whoooo
And now the awful truth is clear: Derrick and I were both beaten by these two skiers with combined age of around 120 or 130.
|Thanks to Mary for all the
|Postscript: I finally beat
Louise at the 10th
Mountain Division Biathlon at Auburn Ski Club.
Yes, yes yes yes yes. Victory is sweet.
