The scenery is unforgettable!
In a moment of weakness, the Race Director from Hell gives me a finisher medal.
Running in the sand made my feet thirsty.
1 min, 2 secs behind Laila from San Francisco.
Stay tuned for the rematch at Quad Dipsea!!!
Perspective: Detroit Marathon time (26.2 miles) = 3:19:16.
Bishop High Sierra 20 miles = 3:19:13.
Scenic reminder of the race.
Then a shower and some grub and it's time to climb!
As Lorenzo and I went bouldering in the Buttermilks...the 50K/50mile runners were coming into a nearby aid station.
Way to go Jack!
The next day, we went to the Owens Gorge for some great big wall climbing!
Great weather, restroom with helicopter rescue basket, lots of climbing - everything an adrenaline junkie could possibly need!
Lorenzo & Jack get ready for the first ascent of "China Doll" at an area called The Great Wall of China.
Top rope warm up.
Placing gear while lead climbing.
Getting down and back up the Gorge while carrying gear was almost as much work as running 20 miles - but I'm looking forward to more climbing at Bishop again hopefully very soon - and I've already registered for next year's Bishop High Sierra 20 mile race!
