My good friend Geoff Briggs took this picture of me climbing Ringing Rodger. Its in the first part of the race. The first climb is nearly done and your getting into it. Ive past that point where I think "God Im never gonna finish this". Its time to think about strategy, where I am, who's about, eating something, the next checkpoint, etc , etc , etc.
The early miles of a race never get any easier but are so rewarding when you look back on how you have done.
