Very early morning run to the top of Loon Mountain via the Bear Claw Trail. Cold morning with some fog, but looks like it might clear up and be nice again today.
I'm quite happy with getting through this. The 1,540' of climbing per day wasn't the hard part, it was finding the time while balancing the more important things in life that was the real challenge here. I hope to get a post out sometime this week on my thoughts on this.
Now this looks like fun! I have the bike, now I just need to sign up for some races.

So, 150,000' up, 0' to go.
A much different view than yesterday morning.
Getting a little higher getting into more fog.

Starting with the sun - my favorite time of day.
This is where I chickened-out on the descent - it looks alot worse in real life! If I went any further I would have written a proper resume for Team Shart.

On day 90 I have climbed 134,857'.
90% of the days are done and 89.9% of the climbing has been clumbed. (yea, that's my new word, it's not a typo)
If I had known this this morning I certainly would have done another 143' today. DAMN!
So tomorrow will need to be 1,643', it's never too late to catch up.
Looking forward to some good vertical this weekend for a little padding going into the final week. I recently had a 3 week period where I only ran 10 out of 21 days and fell behind a little. I did have an 8,000' cushion at that time so it helped, but can't complain going into the final 10 days right on schedule.
I should have no trouble meeting my 100 day goal since I'll have 4 full days, days 97-100, at Loon Mountain with a 2,100' vertical.

After about 5 minutes on the trail this morning Riley saw this rock and the climbing was on. Awesome morning watching him do something he's never done before, he just did what comes natural.
Kayle wasn't up for a run this morning, feeling a little sick. So I took her to do something a little more low key - a place where she could publicly spread her germs and perhaps pick up some other germs as well.

I managed to only run 4 times in the past 12 days, but was able to climb a total of 11,824'. The 4 runs were done in France, Italy England and Wales. Probably the best 4 days of running I've ever had. Pair this with the diversity of the runs and I'd have to say it's definately in the top 5 experiences in my life so far.
Day 84 - 129,553' up, 20,447' to go.
