We volunteered to help with the 4th of July Mt Marathon Race – in the drizzle – continues cloudy – cool 54 degrees. Don’t we look official! After the kids and women’s race, we directed traffic at 3rd & Jefferson. We may not have climbed the mtn, but our legs were sure tired at the end of the day!

There go the men ….. with Eric Strabel breaking the record at 42 min 55 sec --- that is 32:19 uphill time and 10:36 downhill time! Followed by Ricky Gates 43 min 4 sec also beating the record time. WOW
What determination! What endurance! What an accomplishment!
It was fun to see the race, participate as a volunteer and then to put up our feet and relax. Rolling on to Soldotna.
