Mt Falcon v1.0 - 9:30 AM
60s, overcast, dry - perfect!
mind/body - good
Got out with Lucho this morning. First time meeting him but have been following his blog for some time. Isn't it funny how we feel like we already know all these people through blogs? Lucho is a great guy and a very talented runner - anyone who can crank out 14:11 for a 5K is up there in my book. Lots more runs to be scheduled.
Lucho brought a High Gear altimeter to measure elevation gain so I finally know what Falcon comes in at for the full loop - 3012 feet! Kinda disappointing because I have always been calculating more like 4000 ft. We started quick, only because I know how quick he is and I didn't want to slow him up. Turns out we were cooking up the first climb to the shelter and then we mellowed out and had a nice pace for the remaining 12 myles. Good conversation from training all the way to Rob Zombie concert at Red Rocks.
