Juneau’s Dr. Janice Sheufelt finished the 2014 Race Across America, or RAAM, ultramarathon bicycle race at 9:25 a.m. Sunday morning (EST), crossing the finish line of the 3,000 mile race from Oceanside, Calif. to Annapolis, Md. in 11 days 18 hours and 2 minutes.
“She wanted to finish under 12 days, so she got that goal accomplished,” crew chief and husband Jim Sheufelt said Sunday evening. “We didn’t really have a great idea how long this would take when we started. Everything was definitely thrown off when she had to take the night off and go to the hospital.”
