National ski races underway in Anchorage after cold delays

Cross country skiers in Anchorage for the National Championships finally got the chance to race this afternoon. Temperatures far below zero postponed the competition both Saturday and Sunday. Today, women skated a 3-mile course and men skied double that distance. Anchorage skier Kikkan Randall came in second, behind midwest racer Kaitlin Compton. Kris Freeman from New Hampshire won the men’s race about 50 seconds ahead of Montana’s Leif Zimmerman.
