So I just found out that the XDURO course will be the exact same as the mountain bike leg of the XTERRA regional champs. So we will be out there running while the XTERRA athletes are biking!
Good: 1. I just might get to see Melanie McQuaid and some other awesome athletes, if only for a split second!
2. I will know the course REALLY well for regional champs next year, since I’m planning on doing those.
3. Running the whole bike leg will make me feel pretty hardcore.
Bad: 1. I’ll be RUNNING instead of mountain biking, which
might will make me jealous.
2. Takes a lot longer to run 21K all uphill than it does to bike it.
