Good Job Chris & Tom

Mountain Goat
Congrats on completing the Trans-Rockies stage race last week. We knew Tom was tough but guess Chris is too.

Thanks Len (I think)!  

I  am going to give a full write-up to you guys soon.  It has been pretty hectic since we got home.  Back very early Sunday morning and I ended up having to get a root canal today.

Looks like the board is getting more active.  Really great to see! Let's keep it going.

Congrats Yall!

Looks like a really cool time- might check that out next year. Not just a race but a weeklong party.

Was it a challenge or more like a laidback thing?

Next up, the trans-Jersey run. This coming sunday, 2:34 AM, 79 loops of watchung

Was a good race. Very steep and long hills but mainly easy under foot. Recommended.
The altitude was a problem for everyone but quite serious for some. Chris suffered badly on the first day. My sympathy was not overwhelming.
I had serious gas for the whole week and Chris had to suffer my gaseous releases which continually filled our tent.
Strange thing is. 115miles in a week and haven't lost a single lb in weight. Some good food!

Great fun.

Running this sunday at Watchung if anyone coming along.

Yep. I only caught up with him when he stopped to chat with his mate Dean.

Ha! With friends like you guys....

Sean, I don't want you to get the wrong impression.  I am fairly certain that I am still all "tough guy" talk.  I'll try a little harder at the next race to keep that image up.

Btw - if you liked those bottles, I will have to post a pic of Tom's DD rig. We couldn't go anywhere without people ogling them.   I got tired of Tom having to let people know where his eyes were!
