It’s that time of the year. The brave, or foolhardy, amongst us, those who have completed ALL of the Canadian Ski Marathon 160K last weekend as a Coureur des Bois (Bronze, Silver, or Gold), or as one of those rare 10 Section Tourers, can now go on to complete both of the Gatineau long races this weekend: Classic 51K Saturday and Freestyle 51K Sunday.
Why? Incomparable bragging rights: you’ll have your name will appear on the venerated “Triple Folly” Wall of Fame (“world famous” if you follow the directions on the web page :-)
I know there are at least two CSM Gold Coureur des Bois going for it: Ken and Ken. Their full identities may be revealed in time. I hope there are more by next week.
Rest well, wax well, fuel well, pace well, and repeat. Bon Courage!
