It started at 9AM. 45 degrees. So thankful to get started!!
The runners were on their way up the hill when we came around the first corner. We had NO time expectations, we were not competing for awards, we were out to have a great workout and make it to the top of the hill! That white building sitting at the top of the mountain is our destination.
Mile one wasnt to bad, a small incline.
Mile two had the only water station. And the water was freezing!! Not what I wanted!!
Mile Three had another small overlook. This was the steep portion!!! And it started to get foggy!! The steam was rolling off our head and from out breath.
Finally, at the top. This is the small blurry white building that I have circled in the top picture. What a wonderful site. (this picture was NOT taken the day of the race!).
Below are some of my walking buddies. My goal was to make it up the mountain in under one hour. My time was 57.45.
