100 milles, McCall, Idaho
20-21 septembre 2014
Idaho Mountain Trail Ultra Festival 100 was a real kick ass mountain race!
It is a Hardrock qualifier, 36 hours cutoff, 103 miles with a crazy elevation profile, beautiful sceneries and awesome volunteers.
I just ran my best 100 miler so far (and this was #6), it was so much fun!
First Canadian to EVER finish the race!!! 3rd female, 13th overall, with a time of 31:19. 70 runners, 40 finishers, 14 females.
First time finishers receive a belt, second time finishers receive the buckle.
So I guess it means I need to go back next year and run the course in the opposite direction to get the full experience.
Yes, after getting through that killer elevation profile, I can proudly say I AM TOUGH!!!!
The two worse evil moments:
1) The climb at Mile 60. It was just NEVER ending. And it was SO steep! At times, I seriously had to use my hands to climb. When I'll run the course in the opposite direction next year, I'll just slide it on my butt. I better fat it up!
2) Putting that NASTY climb at Mile 90, that late in the game was simply cruel.
BUT... when you are that high, the views are amazing! I took me the entire night to run the mountains from Mile 58 to 80, I look forward to run it during the day next year .
