Carl Hemming improved upon his 10 km classical virtual Sonot Kkaazoot that he did on Wednesday (not Sunday when he was in Anchorage or Talkeetna).
He wrote: “Conditions were faster today than on Sunday so this may account for a slightly faster time. I started at 2 so it may have been 10 degrees warmer. The time on my watch was 1:01.14; the time on the phone included removing phone from fanny pack removing poles and gloves and finding the right button to push, which is quite a big deal for someone approaching 70 yo. This process occured at both start and finish.”
So Carl Hemming’s official classical 10 km Denali State Bank Sonot Kkaazoot is 1:01.14 .
The Sonot Kkaazoot reporting guru (and Carl’s coach) won’t take any additional 10 km results from Carl unless he skate skis. He needs to ski the 30 or 50 km virtual Sonot next if he doesn’t want to be reminded of his underachievement for the next 20 years.
It looks like Carl was the fastest bombing down the Tower loop and White Bear access. Congratulations on your improved time.
