Thanks for the vote of confidence :twisted: ;)

Funny you should ask that.

My legs are surprisingly not sore (unlike Jacc's!). They were sore for the rest of the day and part of Sunday...but, I think jumping in and out of the Jeep so many times helped....and running a tiny bit with Kristi helped....and, the more races I run, the better I am at recovering. At first, I actually thought that maybe I left too much out there....but, then, I realized that I had nothing left at the end....and, my legs are just getting experienced at this whole thing! :)

yes and no. the hills were different than the gats. Smokey cannot be compared to the gats (or anything, for that matter!). BUT, the other hills could be. Running in the gats was extremely beneficial training for CTRR! :)

Congrats on conquering Smokey. I remember what it was like to drive up the mountain but I can't imagine running up it. Your'e a strong one!! :)

You are my IronHero. I've driven Cape Smokey many times. I could never imagine running it.

I didn't get to spend much time with you during the weekend but what time I did was great.

Hey Kiza, awsome report!!!!! You are an amazing runner!! I remember a few years back on a road trip with a bunch of guys when my car overheated climbing smokey. I can relate to the power it takes to make that run!!!

Proud of ya!!!

Here's another comment 6 years later, I have been doing some reading up and came across this race report and really appreciated it. Sounds like you nailed it and I hope one day I get the chance to try it and do as well as you did.

Just over 2 weeks to go and I don't think Smokey got any smaller.
