I did it… even though I wanted to quit 25 times along the way up, I’m so glad I didn’t!
We started at 5:30 am and saw the gorgeous sunrise.
We were then stopped by a moose with her baby on the trail and hung out there waiting for a while… She wasn’t going to leave the trail, so we cut up through the bushes instead.
CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS?
Gummy sharks are my new favorite running fuel.
For about 2 miles it was raining pretty hard on us with so much wind but everything cleared up when we got to the saddle.
But it was cool to see the rain in the distance from so high up.
I made it to the summit and then the downhill was a blast. A bit over 14 miles and we averaged a moving pace of 15:14 per mile.
Now to figure out how to get these legs recovered ha.
Andrew had the most beautiful acai bowl waiting for me when I got home. During the rainy miles all I could think about was hot chocolate but for the downhill miles all I could think about was something cold and delicious.. this hit the spot. Now to find the next summit!
The rest of the day involved a block party and the girls had the time of their lives:).
Tell me three things you are doing today!
