The Everest Challenge is what I’ve been training for all year. For the 2011 Everest Challenge, I took almost 3 hours off my 2004 time and placed 8th in men’s Masters 45-54. This year my sights are 7 places higher. Which is why I am being so fastidious about dropping body fat.
BTW, EC jerseys are excellent quality and you can buy them on the signup form. I particularly like the design of the 2011 jersey, so I bought a few more.
