Race to the Shrine

This coming week is going to be a good one. Matt is taking a few days off so we can have some family time in the mountains and also each have some time home alone.
This morning I woke up early to run the Race to the Shrine at the zoo with my friend Kristen (yup - same name, same spelling). It was only 2.1 miles, but it was UP HILL the whole way with an elevation gain of more than 900ft (average grade of 8.5%) from about 6800ft at the zoo entrance. It took me just over 30 min to get up, but less than 20 min to get down. I think I need to be running hills more often...
