Nice work, Trav. I remember how that road snakes down- I can see how that would be an easy mistake to make.
Good point about doing a small race and running the whole trip, vs a big taper then recovery for days.
Argghh. Other than the minor matter of an official finish, it sounds like a great - if imperfectly strategized - run. I'll bet you would have finished well. Hope your quads are not screaming at you!
A great week nonetheless and possibly a reason to go back again next year?
There's talk of a run along the "haute route" from Chamonix to Zermat
