September 8, 2019 – We started hiking at 6:45 am, the temp was cool but not cold. Lots of people in the parking. As we were moving, we saw several people training for the Spartan race. When we got to the top, someone told us we were as fast as some of the Spartan runners. Then some guy offered us his 7UP, we couldn’t say no, it tasted so good! This was the 3rd time I’ve done this hike and this time I noticed being faster and healthier makes a big difference.
