Mt Wilson 20 miler, capping off a 96 mile week
Beautiful morning on Mt Wilson for a 20 miler to cap off a 96 mile week:
I did the hike up from Eaton Canyon as usual; My pal Alex and his friend Jose, who will be pacing Alex in the upcoming AC100, caught me about half way up having run from Eaton Canyon about 15 or 20 minutes after I started. We hiked the remainder to Wilson summit, watered down, and then cranked the down hill. My round trip for the 20 miles was 4:10. Still a bit slow on the uphill but the downhill felt like powder skiing, it was fabulous. Jose brought a couple gallons of ice cold papaya and pineapple which he served up at the end, with mexican seasoned salt- chile pepper, lime, and sea salt. Out of this world fantastic!
I find myself at the end of a 96 mile week feeling like I want to run more, what a gift.
