4.07 miles/2,275 vert./1:35(57 up) Garmin Data

Met Allison and Sierra for a lap on Green starting at 4pm.  Went pretty easy on the up, talking the whole way and taking in the perfect evening.  I think if she did not talk and pushed a little, she could have shaved a good 10 minutes off, as I pushed the pace a little over the last 6 or 7 minutes and she stuck to my heels pretty good.  I'm going to have to crack the whip on the up next time!

Almost the entire descent was in the dark, but was really fun with the snow, perfect trail conditions, good lighting and great company.  The knee seems to have miraculously healed as I did not feel it at all, quite a pleasant turn of events considering how a week ago I was fearing worst.
