Last night I got the following email from Bill Huggins.
Sure Bill, I'm in.
I assumed that because Bill had gone for a longer run yesterday that we were just going to do the standard Cougar 10 loop but no. Suddenly Daniel Paquette shows up and then a few miles in we drop down Wilderness Cliffs. Of course that means you get to climb back UP Wilderness Cliffs.
I think those guys put about five minutes into me just on this climb of which I had to walk most of.
No sooner do we get rolling again than I hear talk of doing the De Leo wall.
You can see where this is going.
Somewhere prior to De Leo Bill asked me how I was doing and at the time I felt like I was tired but not bonked. On De Leo I bonked.
Not only did I walk 100% of De Leo but I also had to walk a couple of times on the flats between the top and the car just to make it back. Oops.
The only up side to the day is my ankle was pain free. Well, I also didn't get cold. And I didn't fall down. Maybe it was not so bad after all.
