Woo-hoo!! We were watching the live tracking much of the night here. You seemed to be on pace steadily. Well done girl!!
Yay!! Congrats Bash!!!!!!
Wow! Fantastic achievement! Well done!
Very impressive! I look forward to the full report.
Congrats Bash, very impressive and scenery looks incredible!
Thank you. This definitely wasn’t a slam dunk, given the year I’ve had. It was quite an emotional finish. I’m very happy and am looking forward to moving on to different challenges at last!
It's in the book! Congratulations !!
Impressive Bash! Makes me wanna go back and do CCC to finish that loop. How was the section between the Refugio’s? It seemed like such a nice runnable trail on fresh legs.
Big high five! I could also be the Brock Holt to your JF Martinez for a dugout homerun hug.
"What goes around..." eventually reaches the finish.
I'm finally getting back into a routine, which includes AP. Thank you all - and special thanks to the folks who watched my dot. I purposely didn't share the race tracking link since I didn't expect to finish. I think 'Bent shared it on Facebook though.
@Ang, this was my 3rd time on that beautiful section between the Rifugios with the backdrop of Monte Bianco across the valley. Compared to the rest of the race course, it's relatively flat and runnable but there is still 300 m climb and 250 m descent in 7 km, and we were sharing the trails with backpackers. I'd love to go up there and stay in one of the Rifugios.
In UTMB, I was a little more than 20 hrs into the race when I got to Rifugio Bertone, and the next leg to Rifugio Bonatti took me about 2 hours. In CCC, I arrived at Bertone about 3.5 hrs into the race after the bigger climb up to Tête de la Tronche (not in UTMB), and it took 1.5 hrs to run between Rifugios. I felt that altitude was a factor this time, which was new, although it didn't hit me hard until Grand Col Ferret.
