It usually takes a day or two. (Nice job out there. That's half the climb of 7S. Also the woman who took the course record today in 28:55 (!) isrunning 7S, so some competition perhaps (but I'm not sure how she is on the trails).
Hmm. She sounds fast. Has she run it before? If she's actually a runner, and can run stadiums that fast, I don't really stand a chance. Though maybe I'm more agile.
She ran track and maybe CC in college, so yeah. But might not have the wily agility on the technical stuff you do. Plus there are other people in the race. I'm excited. I need to run more trails.
Every time you two comment about Seven Sisters, I kick myself for buying a flight from California to London the day before. When I could TOTALLY reasonably have stopped in Boston for one of my favorite races.
Then I remember that I'm out of shape and have cartilage problems in my knee.
Dual purpose. First, use parachute to escape the airplane. Second, run Seven Sisters using the parachute to take some weight on the descents.
But it would slow you down! I think what you really need is something more like a squirrel suit for the descents - more precise navigation :)
Or just several highly trained squirrels.
This is how I envision Stephen parachuting:
