By Cathy Yndestad

What an amazing experience. I will get a real race report together soon, but in the meantime this photo serves as a summary of what this event was all about for me.

Sharing this truly EPIC event with Kerry was so unbelievable. Here I am jumping up and down as I see Kerry coming up to the finish line a full hour ahead of the 12hr cut-off, and 40minutes ahead of his projected finish time....

Local triathlete Cathy Yndestad (photo-with hubby Kerry) from Apple Valley just went pro. Literally. Before she left town for the Leadville 100 Mile MTB race in Colorado, her pro card arrived in the mail. So it's official! She's a professional triathlete. Congrats Cathy!

I had a woman come up to me before the race and thank me for giving her all the advice at a YW clinic I helped out at earlier this year...I thought to myself wow that's so nice of her! I feel like I'm still learning myself, but it felt good to be able to be an inspiration and help out others who are JUST starting out.

I warmed up like I usually do but really was feeling out of it today...After the warm up I was really not sure how this would go. I had been battling a cold this week not sure if it was due to so many races I've done in a row (5th weekend)..
