Nice and easy up Little Pisgah

It's going to be a while before I get sick of this climb.
2,200' and pick your path for a number of different ascents between 4&5 miles.
Then enjoy a fun descent.
Nice little place here just 100 meters from the trail head.

Mile Reps

Did a few mile reps on a 650' hill the other day. Love this kind of weather and running through the fog!

Week 49 - 9,900' (570,100')

Nice view this morning from the top. Had a large double Jesus, chased down with a shot of Zen while I was up here.

From here you can choose the shortest distance between 2 points, in this case 476' in .22, or continue on the gravel for another .9. My endurance fitness is down a little so I went with the .22.
Close call around the 2:00 mark here.
