Laura and Sven Grage took advantage of the afternoon warmth and the encouragement of Coach Turman to skate ski around the 30 km Virtual Denali State Bank Sonot Kkaazoot in a sizzling 2:05.
Laura writes: “We skied the 30 km course this afternoon in the last of the sunshine. The course was in great shape. We stuck together and finished in 2:05. We ran into coach Turman midway through the course and of course she picked up on our labored but steady pace and took to cheering us on; thank you coach for the positive energy! Thank you to all the groomers and volunteers at NSCF who make everything awesome, no matter what! We don’t carry a phone usually, so didn’t catch an “on-course” photo, but given how fun all the pictures are, here’s one from our spring break trip in the White Mountains.”
Thanks for the report and great photo. Given that this year’s event is virtual, it is really nice to be able to see the smiling faces of fellow Sonot Kkaazoot skiers who we won’t see at this year’s event.
