Summit 700 21K - Bob's new race at Blue Mountain. I only signed up a couple of days ago because I was thinking that I needed a longer run today with Fat Dog just 4 weeks away. But I'm glad I did S700 because it was brutally hard work!
The course felt like an adventure around Blue Mountain - so many kinds of trails and terrain with some beautiful views. I always had people around me so there was no slacking off. My legs were toast by the end! I finished 2/12 in age group, 17/45 women and set my half marathon PR. (No, I've never done a half marathon before - and I have nowhere to go but up with the next one!) Given that it's not my usual distance and I'm a sloooow runner, I was very happy with that.
It was nice to see so many friends volunteering, including Eco, Funderstorm, Greg D, Ursula, Timato and Teeny Tiny.
Sadly, this might be the only photo ever taken of me running that shows the bottom of my shoe.
Thanks for pulling together a great event for us in just two months, Bob!
