Short Report I'm home and I still have all my apendages. Jim and Pat also made it home okay in case anyone is wondering. I'll post a detailed report tomorrow with pictures and videos. Until then here's the short story. Doug also has a great write up already if you need your blogging fix. Way to go Doug! Very cold race. -30F normal temperature and -45F wind chill on the weather channel when we left for the start. I made it to the checkpoint at mile 74 at 11:00pm. Pat White made it as well at 3:00am. Jim Grjalva almost made the check point, but came up 8 miles short when he was picked up by a snowmobile. Great job guys! More tomorrow when I'm rested.

Nice job, Vino.

I was hitting refresh non-stop at work today on the Arrowhead blog, trying to track the race.

I'm amazed at the riders that braved that cold. Unbelievable.
