Turning Winds Academic Institute Students Participate in Local Marathon

On the morning of February 26, 2011 four students from Turning Winds Academic Institute attended the 32nd Snow Joke Half Marathon in Seeley Lake, Montana.  The course is one lap around the Seeley Lake on plowed roads with caution from race organizers of  “ice patches”.  Total distance of the race is 13.1 miles.  These four young men trained for six months in extreme weather conditions.  Enduring very cold temperatures and heavy snowfall they remained focused on their goal.  Below is an account from one of the students on how it all began:

“If you were to drive on a Monday afternoon down South Fork Road in Yaak, Montana; you might witness the sight of four teenagers maintaining a steady pace though the crisp, cool mountain air surrounded by the serenity inducing scenery.  Alex B., Alex A., Phil V. and Hunayf P. are all from various places throughout the USA.  During our stay at Turning Winds Academic Institute
