Well for the record: This was NOT a good idea. No, it was a bad idea, a very bad idea.
It was freaking cold this morning. I was colder here than it was in Zurich.
The 1st ½ mile of the run I was doing ok, but then we started the 2 mile uphill portion. Yes, the uphill to the summit is approximately 2 miles long. This is when things took a decidedly downhill turn. Pun intended.
After ½ a mile on the hill I had to stop and walk. It was that or curl up into the fetal position and pray for death, but I thought that was a little extreme. I eventually made it to the summit but not quite in time to see the sunrise. I also have to admit that in a twisted was I had fun. It was great to see everyone and catch up a little, but next time I’ll take a car and a cup of tea to the summit.
