How awesome is this?! I feel like I won Publisher's Clearinghouse. Tri The Kenai presented me with a $1000 check after the race. Tony, the race director, had the check enlarged for the presentation. How fun. The race is only in its second year and it is a small local venue so the check is really quite substantial. Tony also put a link on the registration page for people to make additional donations. I want to thank everyone who donated. There were lots of $5 donations and that's the point...it all adds up. I am still in awe of the weekend. Alaska has topped my list for favorite races. And results are in. Looks like I took 3rd in age and 13th overall. I'm pretty happy considering all the "firsts", like the tri bike and the cross country run. Thanks again Tri the Kenai for a great event. Next stop, North Dakota this weekend.
