...especially in fall, no?
Yes indeed. I want to go back this fall!
Impressive! I've done Wheeler Peak, Guadalupe Peak, and Boundary Peak--lovely if not particularly challenging. My other high points so far are Whitney, Rainier, Gannett, Borah, and Humphreys. Still left: Elbert, Hood, Granite, Kings, Mauna Kea, and, ooo-la-la, Denali. I like distance running too. I've done one half marathon and want to do at least one full marathon. Probably not this year but maybe next. >>"Did I mention that I LOVE LOVE LOVE this site?!"<< It is fantastic, isn't it?!
Thank you Rootster. And your profile is impressive as well. Rainier.... I'm really excited to do that one. Just not sure when I can get out there to tackle it. I think Wheeler will be next since it's fairly close to TX. Have you picked out a marathon to do next year yet? The San Diego Rock & Roll Marathon was my favorite. Excellent crowd support and great live music the whole way. Fun even though I was hurting at the end. (My time was 4:06)
I grew up there and go back once or twice a year, so for some reason, doing a marathon there doesn't seem particularly appealing...too familiar or something. I was actually leaning toward Portland.
