Sanitas getting closer to goal! 10.5%

March 30, 2017

Gutted it out up the Sanitas steep west ridge segment on strava. Sort of not fun but also really cool. Heck of a gorgeous day took no snacks and

no water. Set a personal record. 10.5%, getting closer to breaking the 10% goal! Really excited for it. I just need to move up 8 spots. I’m a bit conflicted because it’s not a meandering hike but all good, fun to get the heart rate up for 30 minutes straight and be outdoors. I take my time on the descents. Gorgeous day and I’m pretty proud of myself. πŸ™‚

Did a bit of the MMM and Tim ferriss stoic ism, pretending I was blind for a while and then was so happy I’m actually not!

Edit: i made my goal 2 weeks before we keft Boulder did sanitas in top 6%! Cruahed the goal πŸ™‚


Dawn Patrol Hike at ncar

March 28, 2017

Did a 630am hike with a buddy from church who works for Cru. Good times, watched the sun rise. 

Pretty stunning. We made about 5 miles at a solid clip.  Did ncar to the Mesa trail then north towards  hat aqua and added in a steep extra loop up to woods quarry where much of the stone for the CU campus was quarried.  Strava showed us top 8% for one section and top 3% for another rarely traveled section. My goal is to get into the top 10% for the ascent of Mt Sanitas, last go a week ago was top 12% so I’m getting there. Actually that was done two days before this hike. Then after we went to a men’s breakfast at church (cornerstone in South boulder) which was super cool too. 

And saw some deer near the end close to the ncar buildings.
