That which does not kill you makes you stronger - Neitzsche
OK, I'm in the process of trying to sort out my upcoming races that I want to participate in. I'll be honest and say that I'm actually considering an attempt at CCC 100. Why wouldn't I? I love climbing down steep sections that require ropes to get you to the trail below.
I've been running short 5-6 mile runs this week and really feeling tired during the runs. Today was a bit better as I went out slow with Rick from our Y-Run Club and just cruised through 6 miles. I felt best during the last mile.
I've included some pictures from the race in order of when they were taken. The first few shots are from the days prior to the race and then some of race day.
I don't know if I invented this new saying along the way or if I heard if from someone but I've got a new term to describe an ugly finish - Closed Casket Finish. I'll take a CCF anytime.
