Run 2/2 for the weekend. I was feeling pretty unimaginative yesterday. When Peter mentioned that Lily and some other Mountaineers would be hiking up to Kendall Katwalk, and then I realized that the Katwalk is exactly as long as I need, my fate was sealed. My legs were super tired from yesterday, but as they warmed up they felt way better.
- Distance: 12.1mi
- Elevation gain: 3178′
- Time: 3:29 c2c
- Food: 0.5L water, 1.5 shot block bars, 1 cliff bar
The entire journey is on the PCT, so the trail was in great shape. Plenty of it is runnable.
I bombed the way down; 2:07 up, 1:22 down, including much walking.
Foggy views on Kendall peak.
I ran into Lily on the trail. I picked this route in part because Lily would be here. She didn’t know it, but she was the reason I kept going. It was pretty hard to stay motivated today, especially after running 18 miles yesterday. Since I know she was here I forced myself to make it. I ran in to her at about mile 5.25 in. With only .75 miles left to go I could keep going on.
Kendall Katwalk! Cool! I’d like to come back when there are views.
“Hey mom!” from Kendall Katwalk. You can see the rain soaking through my sweater. I don’t usually wear such heavy clothing when I’m moving this fast, but I wast just sooooo cold. So I put on the sweater and kept going.
