Weather forecast: Cool and wet. Trail conditions: Muddy. Follow pink with black strip trail marker tape and BP trailer marker. For first time runners up Black Mountain, it does end. Be nice to volunteers. Hydrate and get food at every aid station. Bring some layers for the ‘picnic in the park’. Bring your friends...
Final “official’ training run completed. 6 more sleeps. Have a great Knee Knacker race on Saturday! Karen Chow’s training run photos from east of Indian River Road can be found in this photo album.
The final Wednesday night “unofficial” training run is done. Ice cream and fruit as a reward. Thank you, Ran! Salvador Miranda’s training run photos from Cleveland in this photo album.
Another “normal” training run with blue skies, muddy legs, bloody knees, face plants (Tom!), falls (Steve and others) and three disoriented runners who were seen coming down from Hollyburn Mountain (for extra elevation training?). Karen Chow’s training run photos from west of Hollyburn Lodge can be found in this photo album.
There was a lot of jumps happening. Check out the jumping styles in Salvador Miranda’s training run photos from Cypress Provincial Park in this photo album.
Today’s photographic adventure: mozzie bait and snorts in the bush. Advised snorting creature (bear?) to move along–many runners will be coming by soon. Karen Chow’s training run photos from Hollyburn Chute can be found in this photo album (sans snorting creature).
