Smokin' the Timberline Trail

I love it when everything goes as planned. This past weekend I ran around Mt. Hood - following the Timberline Trail - #600-which is some 42-44 miles. The weather was perfect. I traveled counter-clockwise starting/ending from Timberline Lodge. Initially the legs felt a little tired but about an hour into the run, they got some life back into them and felt strong. I ran all the downhills/flats and a lot of the uphills. I obviously wasn't moving at a blazing pace but was surprised how good I felt running the hills. My time of 8hrs 45mins was over 3 hours faster than my previous time. Now I'm hoping I can remain healthy and keep the fitness through PCT 100.
