Just got back from a rough week in the Bavarian Alps. Business calls, you know. ;^)
Days full of meetings, nights full of discussion. I know that all of the world’s problems were solved at least once, but I doubt anyone took notes. Sorry world.
But one afternoon was set aside for a team-building hike. Seven of us decided to make it a run. Nothing long, just 5.5 miles. Starting at 3,575’, dropping down to 2,000’. And then back up. Did I mention that this was in 5.5 miles?
That’s 2,029’ of total climbing. Sorry guys, not the 2,400’ that the Garmin was telling us, but I warned you that the Garmin adds a bit.
And the driveway at the bottom of the steep climb? Corrected grade of 45%. That’s before it got steep.
Somebody please remind me – who’s idea was it to run this thing?
