Wow! Simply put: Mt.Rainier kicked my ass!
Although not a long distance hike — it was about 4 miles round trip — the elevation gained on the way up was most challenging. From first steps to summit, there was an elevation gain of 1700′. That’s a lot in a short distance!
That nagging pain I’m fighting in my lower leg joined me for the climb, but the good news is that it’s gone today.
This week’s long run is a down week, so I’m only running 10 miles. Stay tuned for pics — I’ll be in Victoria, B.C.
