Regarding your ski across lake Hayward at the end of the race, my daughter - in - law and two sons are the ones on the lake still cheering you on seven-and-a-half hours after you started! After skiing the race themselves (for about the 10th time, in about 3 hours!), they remain on the lake cheering until the last skier finishes! They know the race is harder for those who take 7 1/2 hours than for the winners who do it in 1/3 of that!
