so we finished in 29:30! we started at 9am on Friday and finished Saturday at 2:30pm.
it was insanely hot this year during the day when we started, and didn't cool down until saturday morning. this causes all sorts of trouble for us, with dehydration, heat stroke, all such good things. then night comes along, and we try extremely hard to stay awake and not to fall off the side of the mountain.
really tough this year - the most number of drop-outs in recent years. congrats to everyone who finished, and congrats to everyone who gave it their best shot!!
and to the pictures -
our team of 4 at the start... actually we're pretty sleepy already. getting up at 6am is not fun.
my new AnD hat! thanks AnD guys!!
going up one of the 20 mountains...
no idea why i am excited... still 84km to go at this point
4 manly men... or so we think. 100km, 100% against poverty!!!
the night is still young... and we are all delirious. night hiking truly sucks, let me tell you. there really are better things than to walk around in total darkness with a dinky flashlight at 4am.
self portrait at foggy tai mo shan...
finally a bit closer. 10km to go! putting on my bravest smile for the camera.
my lovely feet, with about 5 blisters on each foot. hence every step during the last few hours felt like stepping on a bunch of needles. have such things that could only be described as "blister within blister", and "siamese blisters".
i thought everyone would want to see this. no? you must be nobody then.
our finish certs! you can see we are barely awake after 30 hours of self-brutalization! congrats to our team anyway!!
