La Misión 100 miler


Well, that's that. I finished my first 100 miler.
Her name was La Misión, blue eyes, blonde hair and 26,000 ft of gain.


Here's a special wave picture that shows you how much fun I had! Luckily, the course isn't very high in terms of elevation, so a weak lung'd normal like me can still participate and have a nice time in the mountains.
Some videos of the route!

First summit. Hail and wind.

Last summit. Sun and wind.

After 27 hours and blah blah blah minutes, I finished 5th overall! It was a hoot!


Truly, it was a great time and I'm very happy with the result. I may or may not choose to get drunk in a couple of days and write a special story about it. 

Love,
Pat.
