Thanks rob! I did! barely. You can see my write up here...http://chrisrunsandoeslife.tumblr.com/post/12869330721/mount-toby-trail-run-14-miles-7-up-7-back
A little about me....(40 years old, 2 back surgeries) I just started running in July. lost 40lbs(250 to 210). Mostly 3-5 mile runs, (2) - 6.1 milers, and (1) 13.5 miler to prove to myself I could do a half marathon, at my own pace, at Forest Park. Only raced on pavement. Have done 4 5ks, and 1 Rugged Maniac Adventure race(www.ruggedmaniac.com
)(southwick), 3.1 miles.
So this Mount Toby race, was WAY past my skill level. It was WAY harder than I thought. But sometimes you just got to do stuff to prove you can.
I finished last.
BUT, I thought I was about an hour behind the last runners I saw pass me on the way down as I was going up. Turns out it was only about 20 minutes. I must of made up time
because results are posted!
hmmm snow shoes....interesting! Im gonna have to look up some prices.
