Dave Rivas and I ran up Topa Topa Peak today. This is our annual "fit-check" to determine our physical preparedness for our annual mountaineering trip to the East Side. We cruised it; 10+ miles and 5,000 feet of elevation gain in just 3 hours, 20 minutes to the summit. And we noted that previously we had felt more banged up than we did today. Things are looking good.
Patience is not a virtue I am known for, and I'm getting impatient to get up to the mountains. I wait all year for this big trip. Gotta go. Soon. Two weeks, two weeks, two weeks.
