Cottage Cheese Ass Tiger Mt loop

Oh man... I think today was my slowest ever on this route. I set all kinds of records for how much you can walk (practically ever incline) on a 'run'.

I was letting it beat me up all the way to the top. Not good. But as soon as I hit the descent on that beautiful trail it got much more pleasant. I still had to walk most of the inclines on the way down but at times I was able to go fast on the descent and I was always able to appreciate the awesome trail.

I felt so lame in the beginning I almost called it quits about two miles in and practically turned back, In the end I'm glad I carried on and finished this run. As I ran back to the car on the paved path that makes up the last mile I did not feel destroyed or bonked so I think it was the right thing to do.

On the way up I met Arthur Martineau, Steven Kent and Michael Linscott who were finishing up/running down. I had made some noise about going out for five hours today and Steven asked me if this is what I was doing. I mumbled something about just doing three, shook hands and got out of there. Nice of them to say hi.

Not sure why my cycling GPS has such issues when I use it for runs...?! It seems like all of the trail runs I have taken it on lately are short. Like today. Rats.
