It is Sunday and I am home tired but happy. Tonight’s post will be the results from the weekend and in the next few days I should have the energy to blog about the great weekend.
Saturday 25K: D skated a personal best and earned a silver in her age group. L skated a race that would leave her the energy to skate the 50K on Sunday but also did a personal best and earning bronze.
Saturday 1K: Both A and B earned gold metals as they came in first in their heat and also first in their age groups.
Sunday 50K: I decided to give this race a try. The day was calm and with the encouragement of A and B, I decided to give it a try. L and I made a pack to see each other through to the end. We also included Ann from Peoria and Norm from Bemidji into the pack to ensure all four of us finished. The support lasted from the starting gun to the last lap skated today. We all finished and all four of us earned a metal!
