TACKLING THE BEAR 101....

The Bear Race! There he is folks! Destination tonight...TOP! So, tackling the Bear 101...actually, the only thing I can say is to run with all of your might, if you can haha! It's steep! This is my favorite race, and it's a rough one. A 5 mile elevation climb to the top of one beautiful mountain! The top is the sweet reward. It is beautiful up there and quite chilly! And, to make it even chillier, it is pouring down rain today. Fun stuff! Yea, it will be a very interesting race tonight. 800 people in the chilly rain trying to make their way to the top of the mountain. Can't wait. The track in the one pic, is about 2 miles in. The track is the only level part of the race too hehe. Hey, you may remember the movie Forest Gump, where he ran across the country? Well, one scene in the movie, he is running up a gorgeous mountain. This is the one! Neat huh? Well, guess I am ready. I had better be, race is in 6 hours. Woo hoo..looks to be a wet one!
