Carbon's Offset:
I didn't know your blisters started that early. Wow, you sucked up a lot of discomfort for a lot of time after that. Tough chica!
Your elevation ascended was probably about 3000 metres or 3050 m (ours was 3308m, I think Carbon said you had 250m vertical to the top of the north rim)

Yes, we had 245m left and 3km. We ran a total of 72km and our total time was 18.5 hrs. I will figure out actual running time when I download my gps track. You know, i was so disappointed about missing out on the cold drink at the ranch because I thought it would help you hurt a little less if you got a treat ( and my attempt later didn't work either, ha ha).You really did push through a lot! Huge acomplishment! And of course I would not leave you! We were in it together! Besides nobody else would have run with me - who wants to run with someone who appears to have crapped their shorts?!

Sounds like there's more to the story! ;)

Wow, congratulations on your longest run ever on a super tough trail when you were suffering. You are hard core! The photos on FB were amazing.

Congrats to everyone! Sounds like you had a lot of fun, despite the discomfort. Hopefully the memory of your blisters will soon fade in favour of the emazingness of the experience as a whole! See you Thursday. :)

I kept laughing at Carbon's shorts, because they were quite dirty in her bum area from sitting on the dirt. As for the treat, she promised me a nice surprise treat after we left the ranch and started I kept dreaming about it....then at our stop at Indian Garden she proudly pulls out from her backpack a chocolate mint cookie.... and my reaction is, 'bleh'! Because I really don't like chocolate mint cookies! ;)

Fantastic! Creating wonderful memories on the trail and pushing yourself is the best feeling.
