Cabot Trail Relay

Who has done the Cabot Trail Relay and what were your experiences? I put a team in the lotto this year, and am also wondering what our odds are of getting in! Our "Captain" is from California, so maybe that will help?

Re: Managing Monday

Yesterday was one of "those" days. I did three minutes on the treadmill and was done mentally. Then hopped on the bike for about five minutes and was done. Did some pull ups and called it a night!
