Thoughts on the races:
1K vertical is HARD. I could only “run” maybe first 30 ft then it’s pretty much walking uphill….and the walking is HARD. Lot more challenging that I imagined. Comet (the double diamond skill slope) is giving me nightmare both in winter (ski – too steep for me to go down) and summer. Damn Comet!
5K was also THE hardest 5K course I ever done. BUT I did well. First time I made top 3 in my age group, top 8 in all female, and top 30 overall in any race.
