We won the MountainX!!!

Thursday, Friday and Saturday were awesome. Canyoning, via ferratta, rock climbing, white water canoeing and a 46km mountain run in the Chablais Alps from Morzine.

The climbing was on a huge limestone crag above the Col du Colombiere, great views over to Mont Blanc when we got up high.

The canoeing was exciting, we flipped once whilst dropping into a gorge but managed to hold things together, get back in the boat and keep going. I twanged my hip on a rock and have a cracking bruise now.

We were close to our competitors Salomon Crested Butte Ladies all week, it was a great competition. We secured the win beating them on the final run from Morzine on Saturday. It was a tough day, raining for the last hour or so. This was the only rain we had all week so we really couldn't complain.

Thanks to Dave our awesome support crew who was brilliant all week!!!
