Just over a week ago I was fortunate to have the opportunity to travel to France with many close friends to take on the CCC, a 101km sister race of the iconic Ultra-Trail du Mont Blonc. It would be my first attempt at anything over 50 miles and likely 5-6 hours longer than anything I’d ever done.
It would also be just 11 months since my first ultramarathon. And with the honeymoon phase about to end, I feared a possible post-nuptial shutoff in our blossoming relationship.
101km through Italy, Switzerland, and France, boasting 5 major mountain passes and over 20,000ft of climbing and equal amounts of descent.
