2011 Race Results
Sabra Daivison won the Sugarloaf 50K Marathon on March 20th. That's three firsts this season. Congratulations Sabra!
Sunday, March 13th Bill Henchey and I skied the Bolton to Trapp Trail. It snowed very hard and the skiing was amazing. There is over 5 feet of snow on that trail. Winter will be around for a while! We even had the chance to watch the CTA BC challengers go by in the opposite direction. At one point Sam von Trapp was in a tuck going down a steep hill right behind Jake Hollenbach. I noticed that Sam's time was faster, so he must have gotten by Jake on that pitch. Most everyone had a big smile on the face when they went by.
The American Cancer Society Relay for Life had the fullest moon and the fullest rising sun. Just over $90,000 was raised.
Engadin 42 K Swiss Marathon - Robyn Anderson of Team VTXC was the first American woman finishing 22nd overall of 1,676 woman. Ryan Kerigan was the fifth American man, finishing 115th overall in field of 7,684. Ryan time was 2:01:21.6 and Robyn's time was 1:52:32:9.
