24 hours on the track this weekend

Briefly against all my better judgment or lack there of I am heading off later today to Ottawa to run the Sri Chinmoy 24 hr Transcendence race. This will be 24 hours of running on a 400 meter indoor track. I think this may officially push me into the Your Crazy category. I am kind of worried about this one.

The good thing is there will be no mud, hills, bears, beaver dams, rain or running in the dark. The bad thing is although my legs feel good 2 weeks after the Haliburton 100 miler my feet are still tender from the beating they took there. I expect may blister problems on this one.

Poor Kim, I am dragging her all the way to Ottawa. I get to run, she gets to spend her weekend watching me kill myself. Man what a trooper. I am hoping for 160k on this one but it will all come down to how my feet hold up.

Oh ya I should have the Haliburton race report up later today. Its very long and brooding (big surprise).

Good luck to everyone at Scotia this weekend!


  1. Good luck Chris. Very impressive coming back so soon after Haliburton. There is something about this concept in a race has always intrigued me and will be interesting to hear your perspective on it.
