I’m resting up after laying down for about 15 hours and actually sleeping for less than half of that during the 4 days and 15 hours of the Iditarod. Surprisingly, the best sleep I had was when Charlie Farrow and I decided to bivy at the side of the trail about 55. kms west of the tent at Rohn. From there we went the last 165 kms with no sleep and we were virtually falling asleep on our bike during the last leg from Nikolai to Mcgrath.
It was an incredible adventure and I was truly blessed to be able to share it with Charlie. Charlie is a member of the renouned DBD group of super athletes from Duluth. I was honoured when he presented me with two of the coveted patches at the end of the event. One was for yours truly and one for my ever faithful manservent Andy.
One last thought goes out to my friend Marty. I wore your jersey with pride and having you along really helped me through the tough times. I hope I did you proud.
