We always enjoy going up for the Klondike Road Relay. It is a ten person running relay from Skagway to Whitehorse. This year, we considered changing the UAS team name from the Road Scholars to either “Talus and Heavner and a few others” or “Can’t see the Trees for the Forests” (we had Carrie, Matt, Torsten, Uncle Peter, and Nana all along–Carrie, Peter, and Matt ran; and we had two Forests on the team). It was a blast as always. Matt started it off by running leg 1, then Carrie got leg 3–she had a blast as the first time she ran with music, and Peter brought the team home by finishing up leg 10 in Whitehorse. Torsten and Nana provided moral support–and we spent about 5 hours total on Saturday at the Whitehorse Aquatic Center!
Here’s Matt starting, Matt handing off to Forest, and Peter finishing off (the problem with running through the night is that it is hard to get good pictures–so none of Carrie…)
Many friends were along for runs on the UAS team, other teams, and support–the Ferry ride up to Skagway and then back home is always fun. Eran ran for the “Afro-disiacs” team…
We had an awesome cheering crew of Stella and Torsten (with hot chocolates on the cold Whitehorse finish day):
(Almost) the whole team photo shows all the fun–except Mike Ciri snuck out of the photo!!!!
Finally, here’s a photo of Carrie, Torsten, Peter and Nana (just after Matt started out on leg 1) in front of the traditional mural:
