The 2014 Annual 100 by 100 50K Ski Challenge Completed!

Yes!  It's true, I accomplished another 50K ski at the Pole Creek Ski area on Sunday, February 2, 2014.  This is my 12th Ultra and first for the year.  The day was bitterly cold all day and barely got above 8 degrees.  I was really glad to be done and got in the car almost immediately after I was done!  Lori and Shady met up with me right after I was done and took my picture too.  I was super tired because the trails weren't really groomed and glide was hard to come by.  Maybe also I was super tired because I skied a 10K Ski Race the day before!  Downhills were good however.

It was a beautiful day, but super cold.  On one small eating break I took, it took a good 2 1/2 miles of skiing just to warm my hands up again.  I just had to be in constant motion.  I took very short breaks for water and food.  I saw a lot of people on the "Super Bowl Sunday" and I am glad of it too!  The distraction was good as it took my mind off what I was doing for so long!  It took me 6 hours and 16 minutes to ski 31.6 miles.  Not the fastest I've skied, but I finished and I am very proud.

Another $100.00 donated to Alzheimers on 2/3/14!

Here's a couple pictures.  Thank you everyone for the support!
