Butterball waits on the dock while her best friend and AMS office worker, Laura, completes her swim. Butterball did do the run and bike.

It's been a quiet, rainy day in Talkeetna. We haven't heard from anybody on the mountain but that is not unusual. In the meantime some of the AMS staff participated in a mini-triathlon today. Air temperature was about 50 degrees and the water temperature wasn't much higher; turn out was less than originally expected. That did not deter five hardy people from doing a three mile run, short swim and three mile bike. Leighan took first in the run but bowed out of the rest due to fighting a cold. Tim took first place overall. There were three doggie competitors: Kayla, Butterball and Rosie. Butterball won the canine division.
