Up Gregory/Ranger with Sierra.  My legs felt great and I was again itching to go fast, especially in the cool and humid weather.  Reluctantly though, I went Sierra's pace which was fairly casual today.  About ~2 minutes from the summit, it began to storm, so we tagged the summit quickly and kept motoring down the front side (no rules Euro style) as the storm intensified.  You would think a little flash/bang would inspire Sierra, it sure gets me going, but she goes even slower for some reason.  Lot's of waiting.

Up in 38:57 (avg HR 151/max 170)
Down 22:54 (avg 127/max 157)
