Can you really get too much climbing in with your runs? Rob, Mike from Canada, and I ran Loop 2 of the Plain 100 course last weekend. Yes another 34 miles of brutality. My climbing gear seems a bit worse for wear from the Canadian Death Race still. But I made it!
Can you say dust? Poofy powder that seeps into your shoes. I learned you need to pour it out every now and then even if you have gaiters.
