You probably heard about it already, either from the TCC website or Agnès' daily updates, I had a wonderful experience last week, down in Costa Rica. I took the pole position on day 1 after the leader got lost despite being local and having run the same course last year. And kept this pole position for 4 more days, before losing it in the 6th stage on day 5. I'm however very happy with this honorable second place, a very good start for my first multi-day/stage race, with some adventurous and challenging sections. I didn't bring my laptop with me in this humid and rugged jungle, but took 13 pages of notes to tell you more about the different stages, later...
In the meantime, and to keep some of last week's excitement alive, here is the album with my best pics from this incredible journey throughout Costa Rica. 210 km of pain and pleasure. 23 hours of running. More than 12,000 calories burnt. Great running buddies, volunteers and staff.
A picture is worth a thousand words, so enjoy the show (my Picasa album)... Click on Slideshow.
And for more pictures, look at Andres' incredible shots. This is Photography... worth millions of words...
