Took today at #RunOffTheGrid2020 25K
trail race and it feels sooooo amazing! I got 4th
last year and was in way better shape, so I was actually
quite nervous going into today.
Started off the race strong, and was in the lead group
right from the get. There were three of us within
a couple of meters from eacho ther, and we all stuck
together for the first couple of kilometers. Around
the 4km mark, the 2nd place guy behind me took off
and I never saw him again. Gone!
Now, it's me and 3rd, and we jam together for another
couple of Ks. We stayed close, had a little chat,
and around 7km, he took off and left me solo. I stuck
to the program and didn't stray from my game plan.
I kept my pace and just kept on trucking.
For the next 15km, I saw no one (except for some off
the other racers running the other distances). Around
the 22km mark, I was marching up a death hill, when
I saw him... 2nd place! Yes, I can't believe it! I
stuck to my program and continued with my marching
pace. He was marching as well, and I called up, "I'm
coming for you!"
When he crested the top of the hill, he took off,
and I did the same about 30 seconds later. I followed
him for about 1km, but about half way up our next
big climb, he pulled up with a cramp! Noooooooo! As
I was marching up towards his position, I ask him,
"do you want a gel?" He gratefully responded,
"yes," so I hand him a chocolate stinger,
and take off... 2nd place is mine (I thought)!
About 500m after I overtook 2nd place, my calfs gave
me a strong warning! It forced me to jaunt gently
and carefully, one wrong step and I would have dropped
with a double calf charlie horse. Podium dreams, dashed.
But about 1km later, I hear someone charging down
hill toward me... it's the dude I had just passed!
I only have one option... send it! Charlie horse or
not, I can't let this guy pass me with 2½ km
left. I instantly turned on the jets, blasted off
toward the finish line and took 2nd place by about
Huuuuuge props to the Jennifer Demille and the entire
Nature's Harmony Ecolodge team for another FANTASTIC
installment of ROTG! As always, so well organized
and flawlessly run!
And as always, thank you to Kim Brouzes nd the Active
Therapy + team for keeping me in one piece putting
me in the best possible position to attack the trails!
Kimmy, I couldn't do what I do without your wizardry.
