Four hours of running in the snow and rain for Rob and I this morning on Mt. Peak. I got soaked to the bone and failed to bring dry clothing. So much for relying on gortex to keep me dry in the rain and snow.
Our first climb and descent to the back side of Mt. Peak took much longer than anticipated due to darkness and very slippery snow conditions. When we got back down to the trail head we checked the time and realized we only had time to go to the top and back to the trail head before Michelle and Jane were going to meet us at 8:00AM. We made it up and back returning to the trail head at about 7:50. Rob changed into some dry clothes and I proceeded to chill and shiver. Michelle, Jane, and Darcy all showed up to make a climb up to the top. Darcy chose to head back down to the trail head after making the summit as the rest of us headed down the back side of the Mt. and then looped around on the roads to the trail head. Rob showed us his incredible ability to run through puddles. He also jumped down into a deep ditch and ran through it for a short distance.
Rob and I got in about 13.5 miles and Michelle and Jane got a good 5.5 miles in. I entertained them with my shivering at Starbucks in Bonney Lake as they told me how good the dry clothes they brought made them feel all warm and toasty.
Rob and I on our second summit The whole 8:00 AM Gang at the summit Rob has been a bad influence on Michelle Rob running through puddles. No wonder he's in the dumb ass hall of fame!
