After I cleaned the house Izzy said I could go play. So I went target shooting with my CZ .22 Long Rifle till my fingers were numb and I ran out of ammo. Then drove to LCC to run up the Quarry Trail. Driving on the freeway was quite blizzardly so I was unsure how the conditions would be. My goal was to beat Spence's Fireblade 52:04 he ran the other day. With the conditions such, I figured I would just try to make it to the top through the snow. Surprisingly, I found the trail to be runnable. I hit the gate at the top in 31 minutes and flew down for a finish time of 48:25. I absolutely loved the conditions, 5 inches of soft snowy goodness to cushion the flight. My watch only showed 5.4 total miles and the sign said 5.6... not sure why.
Splits went 10:13, 12:09, 10:50, 6:23, 6:35 and 2:16 change. 1090 Vertical Gain.
|Most shots in the black. Hard to shoot straight with a numb finger and snow flying in your face. Sweet gun.|
