When I was getting fitted for my new running shoes, I told the guy that was helping me that I was training for the Wildflower and he said he would be going up their too. I thought that was pretty cool until he said, "Hope yer training for some hills." At that point, we both sort of chuckled and proceeded to talk about something else.
Well, the word "hills" sat in the back of my mind for about a week or so before I went on to the website for the Wildflower and found the actual Race Course map. I found out in fact that the "hills" were no joke and it looks like the cycling portion is a straight roller coaster followed up with a gradual uphill run until you hit the 6k mark and then start climbing some sort of monster. I'm not so much intimidated, but more motivated right now to train harder and change my routes up.
I'd love to hear details from anyone who has raced the Wildflower and how their race went.
