Breakfast was followed by a 24 mile run up on Pikes Peak with all elevations between 10,200 and 14,115 (It feels weird typing that number and not 14,110.) 6:24 of running with 8,419 feet of elevation gain with an average elevation of 11,688. Got to be honest and say that the altitude kicked my ass today once above 12K. And I have realized that my time from the summit down to 3-to-go is now what my time up from 3-to-go to the summit was at one time many years ago. Time waits for no man as they say. I also did the run about 30 minutes slower overall than I had hoped but I still felt like I got some quality time on my feet today.
