Tour of Seattle Peaks

The original plan this morning to run 20 miles on beautiful single track trails was not to be. As John, Josh and I discovered however, running through slushy icy cold snow is not very fun. My feet have never been so cold. We ended up fleeing back to the city and doing a tour if the urban Seattle peaks, hitting Capitol Hill, Queen Anne, Magnolia, and Kite Hill. The data below does not include the 2 1/2 miles at Cougar Mountain.

Weekly Summary Dec 4 – Dec 10

Total Mileage = 40 miles

Time = 5.65 hr

Climbing = 2860 ft

Little bit of a slow running week last week. Wasn’t able to squeeze out much of a long trail run on Saturday, so I had to settle for running up and down Queen Anne hill four times. This is a very quick and efficient way to gain 1200 feet of climbing. Looking forward to hitting the trails again next weekend!
