6am start @ RunUphill/SkiUphill in the town of Canmore, AB! I had an amazing crew the whole day/night. My friend Skylar crewed for the full 24 hour period and met me between peaks to help refuel etc. My good friend Sam Dickie paced me for the first Quad (57km) and Skylar also joined for Lady Mac & Ha Ling on round one.
I started the day with Grotto Mountain followed by Lady MacDonald Summit, then across the valley to summit East End of Rundle & Ha Ling. After completing all 4 mountains we ran back into town to RunUphill to refuel and I picked up a new pacer, my friend Kevin, who ran the 2nd lap of Grotto with me as well as Lady Mac. Skylar also joined us for Lady Mac. After Lady Mac, my friend Frank joined me for the run across the valley in the dark and pouring rain up to EEOR where we met another two of my friends, Nicole and Emily. We all summited EEOR together and they helped navigate our way through the rain and whiteout up there, so thankful to have had them there! My friend Sam came back up the bottom portion of EEOR to meet us and then we all continued up Ha Ling to finish off the 8th and final peak of the day. Sam and Nicole both ran back into town with me to RunUphill to finish the effort off with a final time of 24:33:39.
What a beautiful day and beautiful place to call home. Grateful for the experience and more grateful for my amazing friends who helped crew me, pace me and pushed me to finish this massive day. Blessed 🙏
