24 hours to my first vertical climb - Vail, CO
Sitting in the airport at Dulles International waiting for our flight to Denver. Really looking forward to the beginning of our vacation. But before the vacation, I thought about signing up for a La Sportiva Hill climb which is 7.5 miles and starts at 8500 feet in elevation and ends at 10,300. Yea, for a guy who runs races at 1,000 feet elevation, this should be a hoot. I can only imagine what I will be feeling like by mile 5..I bet the lungs will be burning....well, boarding in about 20 minutes so will check back in later this week...I'm out.
