Prince of the Ridge

I did 25 laps yesterday for a total of 10,375' of hiking up hill. Roughly equivalent to climbing 16,600 stairs. The winner this year was another John. I led for the first 3 laps and then decided I didn't want to suffer that badly all day and slowed down a little bit. I ended up taking second in mens to another John, and third overall as the winning women did 26. She was the 4 time national mountaineering champ, so I certainly don't feel bad about losing to her. I carried my GPS, here's what it looked like:

Looks like a lot of repetition to me and a lot of heavy breathing. Sounds like the spoils were pretty good for the prince.

Yeah, lots of repetition and enough heavy breathing that I picked up a smokers cough for a few days. The spoils were almost $400 in sporting equipment, so it was probably worth the 5 hours of moderate discomfort. Now I have another backpack to add to the 6 that are in my closet already. . .

Good work prince, you should hook up with some sponsors for next year, and have them pay for some blood doping. I hear that's what you do to win these days...
