Stage 5 of 6 is complete at Transrockies and i'm tired! Don't worry, there's going to be a full report on it all when i get back to Calgary and can get a look at some pictures I have from the whole experience. I just wanted to comment on our best day so far...today!! We've been doing really well all along finishing usually in 4th or 5th each day... but today we finally managed to nab 2nd place in the mixed division and we'll be on the podium tonight! I'm so excited :)
It was a long exhausting day...especially when we've already completed 4 tough days previous! Today was the second longest stage at 37.7km but it was also the stage with the second most elevation gain...4400 ft!! It was a super tough day but a great one! Only one more stage left to go and i'm kind of relieved it's finally here. My body is hating me!! And my feet definitely hate me...the downhills have been pretty sick and gives me issues with my right heel which has turned into one big giant blister. Luckily the sports medicine guys have been fixing me up and pumping it with zinc oxide...it's magic I tell ya!
Well that's it for now, 1 more big day of running to go tomorrow...21 miles and 4600 ft of elevation gain...the most in the whole race. They definitely don't want to make Stage 6 easy on us. Yikes.
Gotta go stretch out these legs!
