Since my last post I ran a bit, not as much as maybe I should, but my paranoia over injury kept me off the trails. Last week Sunday I went for a 5 hour run. Not so concerned about distance, just wanted to go until I was done. And I did, 33.8k in 5 hours. Ran from Rundle Park to Terwilligar, then headed towards 178st. That is a long way. I did a ton of walking, found I was tight and my back was a bit sore. On Thursday I did a 5k, today 14.3k in the river valley. I’m starting to get my gear together, don’t want to forget anything. I will probably run 2 different camel packs, one is smaller and lighter and will use that for the first 2 legs. I will need more gear when I climb the mountain on Leg 6, toque, warm shirt or vest, running poles, snowshoes.
I hope to get a good picture on this race, I plan to hand someone my phone when I make it to the top of the mountain to take a picture.
