Green Mountain

6 miles
2,400 vertical
47 up

Had an easy day out after taking 2 days off due to weather, in-law obligations and being a bit sore from my hard run on Tuesday (otherwise I would have ridden the bike on those days).

Allison got a bit of a head start up Gregory as she arrived before me. I ran moderate pace (150-160bpm) till I caught her a bit before the ranger hut. Despite not really giving it too much, I was only a minute or so off of PR pace, I guess that is good?

The last half mile or so of the Ranger Trail was completely slush covered and slick. Sierra romped like crazy, she is a bit more excited about the snow than we are at this point in the season. Awesome day.
