Congratulations to all the runners who braved the frigid temperatures to run the Inauguarl Yukon Do It! Marathon and Half-Marathon. We started with fog hanging low over the waters obstructing views of Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and the Olympic Mountains. Just after 10:00 a.m., the fog began to lift. The full marathoners were treated to sunny skies and spectacular views.
