It’s not very often I purposfully boast (ahem), however the 2012 Transalpine was very very tough – and Kelly (blog here) and I made it!  With great respect to Kelly for being a fantastic running partner and extrodinary runner.  Kelly, had she been in an all femal team would have come 19 minutes overall off 3rd place podium finish.  Amazing in it’s self, and below are all the statistics and fun tit bits…
