Last week Marco and I went to Alaska to compete at "arctic man"....
It's a race that combines downhill racing and getting towed (like water skiing) by a snowmachine (what I learned is what you should call ski-doo's (which is what I thought everyone called them! haha))
The race is 4:15 (my time) of PURE BURNING LACTIC ACID. Not only that, but you get pulled up a rough and bumpy hill at 80mph (130kph) and have to hold on NO MATTER WHAT. Then, when you think your legs are more dead than they have ever been, you need to "whip" yourself away from the skidoo (snowmachine whatever) and then launch off a downhill jump and keep tucking for another 40 seconds!!
These animals have nothing to do with it.
... so anyway, I arrived in Alaska on a beautiful blue sky sunny day!
So anyway, my driver Julie and I won the women's Arctic Man Race!!! Maddy and her driver Danie were second!
We hung out with about 1000 sleds at the bottom of the race!! Mario, Luigi, and the KING OF THE NORTH were there too! (and julie! hiding!)
I was only 11 seconds off Marco! ha!
Nate and Jason and friends.
THIS WAS A HIGHLIGHT OF THE WEEK FOR ME... sooooooooooo delicious.
