The Calm Face
Finished my 2nd North Face 100! I finally plucked up the courage to have another crack at it after 5 years.
In 2010 I said I would never do it again. I was saying that again this year, funny how you forget!
The course was a bit different especially from about 54km, seemed to be more stairs and technical narrow fire trails this time, lots of up up and down down.
The start and finish was located at Scenic World in Katoomba. With the final kilometre including 860 step climb up the Furber stairs to the finish line, the same stairs we had descended at 5km into the race. Very much on my mind as we were descending those steps was the thought of climbing them again at 99km. Anyway I did it, after 19hrs it was wonderful to cross that finish line.
Thanks to the wonderful support of my husband Kim and youngest daughter Amy for once again making up my support team and meeting me at checkpoints 3 - 5 plus waiting to cheer me on at the finish line. Thanks Teresa.
