Just wanted to congratulate all the skaters who participated in the 27th a2a road skate. The weather was perfect.
I volunteered at all the check points, except #6, as I waited for my husband to arrive. All the skaters seemed in a good mood. Even the skater from London wasn't complaining about the heat.
I don't think I heard of anyone who got lost this year. Maps are given to every skater in his/her packet. The European/Scandinavian skaters did great! Thanks/Tak for comming.
Eddy made a great bumble bee costume and was flying around the start line putting smiles on skater's faces. For the second year in a row, Danny Dunn, skated the full 87 miles. He did it in 453.37
WOW! What an inspiration he is. Someone should make a movie about how far he has come since his accident. Eddy and Dan are skating partners. One might say, they are the original Mavericks http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bYrsDT02OcE
