Leg 3: Balsam Bust

Leg three is a tease..... It starts downhill for half mile, then rolling hills for another mile and a half.   Just when you think (or in Matf's case SAY) "this isn't too bad", you turn a corner and Balsam Mountain stares you in the face and laughs.  Three agonizing, mountain climber-esque miles later, you find yourself huffing and puffing your way to the top.  Adding insult to injury, the 18-wheelers create a wonderful head-wind that stands you straight up!  All in all, it was a good but challenging first leg of this year's event.... And a proper way to welcome Matt to the R4R!
