That's right. I forgot about that epic duel between the two of you!

Nice run Rob and Jon. Two fast dudes runnin' in the snow.

From Holt on Sat, Dec 07, 2013 at 20:27:20 from

Congrats to both of you - you and Kramer that is... Not you and Jon!

Thanks Dave. I should also have pointed out that 4 of the 10 girls finalists are from Utah. So 6 out of the 20 total from the West.

Yup it was cool to watch (the parts that came in clear)... And Rory from Herriman was 11th just missing a spot with a great race.

Nice job Kramer! Sounds like you had productive day with plenty of cross training. I can't wait to do an upper body snow shoveling workout tomorrow night.

Fantastic, Rob. Congratulations to him and you.

P.S. Please keep your snow.
