Randy Plett On The Mend- Up Walking & At Home

Getting a draft on your lap was a special treat that does not come along that often.  Most of the time, you are skating against your own pain, desire to stop, loneliness, and at night, fear, because some sections of the track are pitch black.  At those times you are skating on faith alone.  It is truly a unique experience!

The best light trick of the night was by one of the girls teams who had light ropes fashioned in circles around their, shall we say, upper body.

We decided that each year, the oldest member on our team, who has not done the last lap before, would get to do the last lap………after all, at his age, he might not make it til next year.  …
