This was at the finish line of the Seattle MS Skate marathon. Finished in 8th place,
Time: 1 hour, 21 minutes, 1 second (30 seconds behind the winner)

A very good event for me in that i caught the lead pack some 3 or 4 miles into the event, through shear will power, and managed to hold on until about 2 miles before the finish, when i was just too tired out from pulling about 3 times for a total of maybe 4 miles. Got to skate with some great skaters, for which i felt extremely fortunate, including Jeremy Anderson, a Bont sponsored Vet skater, a 2005 USA World Team skater, and the winners of several area marathons.

I had hoped that this event would hone my skills for the upcoming Northshore marathon in Duluth, but unfortunately, the rains came and i opted out. So this was my big race for this year, and as such, the photographer for the event just got me the digital copes of these pics this morning.

Note:- i'd like to be a little lower, but at the end of a marathon on a very tough course, you do the best you can.
