Thanks everyone! Yes after 3 attempts in the past 9 years, I finally got it. But it was hard work. I am still amazed at my time from the South Col - 7:40 and 3:20 back. I trained especially hard the previous 18 months and had many other things going for me such as motivation relative to my Alzheimer's fund raising and the memory of my mom. You can read the dispatches and a summit night report on my site at www.alanarnette.com. As usual I will post a season recap here on SP. Thanks again!
