Great Gorilla Run: Results!

We did it!

The Great Gorilla Run was a huge success. I raised over £2,400, putting me in second place among all runners. Thanks especially to all the Eressea players that have donated in the past. You guys rock.

It was excellent of Jørn to come along this year, I doubt I would have had half as much fun without him – if you want to participate next year, my advice #1 is to do it with friends. If only because they can film you doing it. Speaking of which, we took a lot of photos (they are on flickr). And we have a short video:



That’s today’s time on my bike computer after the 350m climb from Gressbanen to Tryvannstårnet. And it beats my previous record by a whooping 54 seconds. Morten wasn’t very happy last time I beat him up there, but he hasn’t made any attempts to counter me yet – too busy being a daddy, I understand. Probably much more fun than crushing me, and I get to feel good for a tiny little longer. I’m sure I will lose my status as king of the hill before the year is up 🙂 In fact, I hope I will.

And yes, the pro cyclists do this in 15 minutes. We hate them.
