World Mountain Running Championship - Day 3
Above is a picture of the US team marching in the opening ceremonies. It's a cool 50ish degrees and raining but the energy level is high as the athletes are looking forward to tomorrows races. We marched 500m from the town center at the base of the "funicular" to Hes-co, the University of Applied Sciences of Western Switzerland. In 1 hour, I'll be at the technical meeting where race numbers will be distributed.
