I went to Costco and played bumper carts with everyone while they were trying to get free samples. They have the best prices on Blue and Green Machine drink. I made it out under $150 so I consider that a victory in itself.
The I decided to punish myself on another grueling trail run. Not only is this one hard as hell going up, it's twice as bad going down since you often have to find the trail at the top. It's washed out, rock covered and some spots you have to use all 4's to get down. The first 2.5 miles are an elevation gain of 1400 feet, then that's followed by 2 miles of loose dirt, rocks and boulders adding another 800 feet. Then you plummet down 2200 feet in the last 2.5 miles with huge ledges and scree slopes. I took 6 minutes off my best time.
|Yes, there is a trail there and a city in the distance.|
