Manitou Incline & Barr Trail

5.85 Miles Total
1 Mile Incline 24:21 *PR*
9:15 am) cloudy, cool & humid 85%
Did not expect to have a PR today on the Incline. Would have
been happy to break 25. Was very cool upper 50's but it was
humid! I have been trying to do a little more running on the
Incline than in the past. I used to basically power hike the
whole thing. I'm getting stronger and can find a few spots
to actually run briefly. I think my time can get faster
as I get even stronger. A year ago when I did it for the
first time my time was 32:41! I have made huge gains in a
year. Don't expect to improve that much in the next year.
Maybe I can get in the 22 range or better this time next year.
Looked up my bib # for PPM I'm #125. I wish it would have been
just 25 instead of 125. The reason being this will be my 25th
marathon. Still kind of neat though.
