Toronto City Chase Completed - with teaser

What a day! it rained most of the day as we ran through the streets of Toronto, completing crazy challenges and covering about 14KM on foot in the process.

We achieved all 10 Chase Points this year (only 9 last year) in 4:49 (5:28 last year).

I'll be back tomorrow with more details and photos, but here's a teaser for now. Just one of the "challenges" I had to complete. Yes, that is a tarantula on my face and YES, I am freaking out.



And now it's off to bed - I have a 19K group run at 7:30AM.
