Défi de L'Île de Montréal
128 km on inline skates
I finished in 8:37 this year, an hour and 20 minutes faster than last year, probably thanks to how my technique improved with the help of my good friend Robert Lacasse. Despite the rain, losing a screw for one of my wheels, and colliding with a car (kind of hard) on Pierrefonds Blvd, I think this year I experienced every emotion possible: excitement at the start, low morale later on, intense pain, then anger, then joy again at seeing the pavement dry up, then fatigue... This event is named exactly right, Le Défi -- The Challenge. Doing this is really living.
