Well, the Germans were NOT joking about the steep road next to their offices in Bavaria in the foothills of the German Alps. I was able to get some quick vertical in that did not make for much conversation with the folks I was running with. Well 2 guys were chatting it up quite easily, but they tried to pretend this was a hard run for them. Good amount of steep road that picked up a trail near the end and the trail took the rest of the climb to the top of a big hill.
Monday - 1,483' - with a great group from Invia.
Tuesday - 2,966' - doubled Monday's for an early morning run.
Wednesday - too many hours of travelling today.
Thursday - 851' - A very tough/tired/jet legged run, had no energy.
After 34 days 53,639' up, 96,361' to go.
An average of 1,577'/day, just a little ahead of schedule here, 77' per day to be exact.
