I didn't get a picture of me racing, but I did get a picture for racing.
Leg 10 of the Cabot Trail Relay. MacKenzie Mountain
Of course, during the race the leg doesn't start until 9:30 PM so it's pitch black and doesn't look as good. It was pretty surreal running up the mountain and hearing the sounds of coyote and moose in the background. Their sounds were drowned out by the sound of my heavy breathing and lung butter snarls.
The time cutoff for each leg is 6:00/km. I came in at 1:26:00 for the 14.7km, or 5:50/km. I was pretty nervous after having a few KM over 7:00 on the steeper parts but managed to get my shit together and get a finishing time.
Let's just pause for a minute and take in the fact that this is currently the leading headline on the largest triathlon website in the world. You have the ability to publish literally anything to the world, and this is what you choose.
A middle aged man tells the story about how his wife let him buy a $6000 treadmill. If I saw this posted on the forums I wouldn't even look at it twice. What kind of cognitive dissonance exists where you have that much separation between what you think is a decent article to publish versus what people want to actually read. What a joke.
I'll start, in Cape Breton we have this thing called Meat Darts. You play darts and can win meat instead of money. Best played down at the legion. It can be confusing when come-from-awayers see a sign that says, "meat darts tonight". Do you throw darts made of meat? Do you throw darts at meat? Did they forget a comma and are trying to say there are meat and darts tonight? Meat darts is a great time, you can't beat meat darts
