Anyone here running the Canadian Death Race in 2007?

I am on a team now, and I am looking forward to it very much. I am running the longest leg, the fourth one - 38 kilometres. Should be interesting! The description of this leg on the official website is "total elevation change is well over 6500ft, which practically comes all at once."

Well, I am still sore, although it's getting better. Leg 4 was a killer! I had a lot of fun on it; it was a fantastic feeling to reach the summit.

I had trouble with all that downhill running though. It's not my thing, and I lost a lot of time compared to other runners.

Our team placed 2nd in the end, 2 min behind the winners. We were in the lead most of the race but they had a fantastic runner on leg 5.

Maybe we will be back next year - would be fun to win!
