Great News for Team Merrell/Akali and Project Athena this week!
*Team Merrell/Akali’s Carter Johnson tried out for and made the US National Marathon Canoe and Kayak Team in both the K1 (solo) and K2 (two person)catagories in the last two days! He’ll be all over the world racing for Team Merrell/Akali!
*I have a few quotes in a CNN.com story today about adventure racing. This author, Ashley Fantz, will also be coming to the Rim to Rim to Rim trek as a Fundraising Goddess on Sept 1-5th, and plans to write a piece about PA for CNN. http://www.cnn.com/2010/TRAVEL/05/25/adventure.races/
*Team Merrell/Akali Adventure (Greg and Denise Mchale, with Benjamin Midena and Nathan Peterson) is rockin’ the last day of the XPD Australia Expedition race. They’ve been battling among the top 3 for the past 4 days, and should finish either 2nd or 3rd place by tonight (out of 50 starting teams. World Champs of Team Orion dropped out yesterday). Another podium finish in a world class AR World Series race for us!
