I'm 'back' !!

What a great weekend we had at the Cabot Trail relay race, a 185 mile/298km, 17 stage relay race through some of the most beautiful scenery in the world! Legs vary from 12km to 20km in length and in difficulty from steep mountains to the gently rolling Margaree Valley.

Just 'back' and I've posted all 135 pictures at my site on Webshots

Our Aliant Striders team results (we placed 44/63 teams; search on Aliant) are in the middle of the pack and the main goal was to have fun and not worry about times or results. The 1st concern was runner happiness and comfort with alot of newer runners on the team.

Because we were missing a runner for one leg I ended up running two legs and couldn't be more pleased with the outcomes. See my placings in leg 6 (18/63) and leg 17 (28/63)
Middle of leg 6 on cruise...
End of leg 17...

The most important result for the weekend was that I got a huge recharge to the enthusiasm meter for running but the details will have to wait for another day.

Keep on running my friends!

Uppehälle på rinnande min vänner!

Woo-hoo, you're looking smooth and in control! Great pictures too, I'd like to run there and not to worry about anything but runner's happiness:)

I've heard so many good things about the relay. There is always a team from our neighbourhood there to participate. Great photos Mike. You look like you are in charge!

Glad to hear you've been "recharged". Great photos as always. Congrats on another race.

Looks like lots of fun. The 153 mile relay I will be running has 33 legs with 11 runners per team. I am not sure which way is more difficult. Running 3 shorter legs or 2 longer legs.

Great pics. I'm impressed with your ability to do two legs. I'd be dead after one leg on that terrain. Hills aside, I can't wait to do that race one day, the scenery looks amazing.
