We Did It! IceMan 2011

by Josée

We completed our first family IceMan relay! We finished all the events in 2 hours 32 minutes 23 seconds putting us in a solid 60th place (out of 93 in the open relays).

Our times were as follows:

Papa – 8km ski 0:32:27
Sister – 10km run 0:55:05
Brother – 5km skate 0:17:22
Me – 5km run 0:28:14
Papa – 800m swim 0:19:17

I am really happy with my 5 km run time of 28:14. I beat my goal of running the 5km in 30 minutes even though the roads were bumpy, icy and slushy. The whole event was a fun experience! Would I do it again next year? Yes, as long as I get more than three weeks notice to prepare.
