You know what I'm glad about? I'm glad the Jupiter Peak Steeplechase is over for another year. I don't climb mountains particularly well and I'm not totally sure how this race ended up on my to-do list for three consecutive years. Every year I forget how long and hard that climb up Jupiter Peak is. You can go to mountaintrails.org to see a video of the course and what the climb is like (never mind - you can't).
Second in my age group again - this time to Bill Cobler who I beat Monday at Des News but who crushed me today by 4 minutes. I beat Taha Mahmood who beat me the last 2 years and I thought that would be good enough for the age group win but no dice. I ran the uphill slower this year and the downhill quite a bit faster.
My time was 2 minutes slower than last year but the course was .3 longer so maybe slightly better?
