Sunday, 03/28/10 Green Mountain

Spring is back, low 60's today which is slowly melting the snow. Bumped into Brandon who was returning from the summit after running there from home, the bumped in Rex and Caroline. Much of Gregory Canyon is melting out, above that it is all snow, but the trail is getting a bit wider and seeing more traffic. Footing was decent with Microspikes on the up and I felt more efficient than in days past. I went pretty casual, just enjoying the day and going Sierra's pace.

As Brandon warned, the down was really slick due to the sloppy slush and soft snow, so I just went very easy on the down as well.

Up Gregory/Ranger: 44:01 Avg. HR 143, Max 158
Down Gregory/Ranger: 29:10 Avg. HR 115, Max 133


  1. My spikes were not grabbing anything at all and I nailed my shin. Sucked. That path was super packed out on the up thanks to you. Loved it. Almost called you to sync up today but I didn't know if and when I would see the summit.

  2. I noticed you havent run Green in the past few days.. it must have collapsed as that would be the only thing keeping you off it! ;)
    Glad you are tearing it up. Have fun in the big beaautiful ditch!
