Hi there COTHers,
I've posted a blog today about my experiences watching the riders and runners at the Vermont 100. Please let me know what you think. Here's a link to the article:

You endurance athletes are amazing!

Best wishes,

I don't remember a runner at the Tevis Cup - I remember the first "Levi Ride and Tie" race sometime back then, where you were supposed to share the horse in relay fashion. IIRC there were problems with it, a couple of horses didn't do too well, and it morphed into a team endurance race with both (all three to be picky) partners doing what they did best.

Still pretty cool, hats off to everybody with the fortitude to do it.

I've read accounts of the Massanutten Mountain, it sounds unreal!!! Volunteering at these events is a real eye opener to the human psyche
