This is some of the technical areas as I was coming up to the summit. No running here, this was slow scrambling up these sections.
Nothing felt better than standing on top of that mountain looking at the 360 view over the valley. It was incredible. Overall the run was 1.75 miles to the summit, 1200 feet of elevation gain, and a total run time of 1 hr 3 min. Here is the elevation graph from my Garmin.
Only drawback was that running back down the mountain was only a few minutes faster than going up the mountain. I started really early so nobody was on the trail, but on my way down the hikers were on the trail so I had to keep stopping to let them by.
Tuesday will continue to be my early morning trail run and I will continue to run this mountain so let me apologize in advance, you will see a lot of the same pictures lol. Its more and more beautiful each time I run the trail but moving forward my goal is to get up the mountain quicker. I think this will really help when my runs are on flat courses.
What is your elevation gain looking like these days?? Do you run the same trails over and over and over??
