But lets re-trace a bit and have Larry and I arrive to Denver, CO, to a weather of 50F with sudden snow as we drove to Estes Park and visited Rocky Mountain National park for a bit. No shit! Snow! And we are not prepared!
|AS at 2.2M, with Krissy Moehl, where we dropped our lamps and I left a shirt behind.|
|And lots of stairs.|
|This is what it looks like climbing up those stairs.|
|Snow dust on top ridges. In May.|

|Scott Jurek serves AS.|
|Walter Edwards there as well.|
|Nice single track in places.|
I replaced gels from my drop bag, saw Larry who finished his 25M race in 4:58 (sub-5 as planned!), gave him a camera, and went back up, before my mind changed. When the run is hard, it is imperative to not linger - and the work has begun.
