Ready for Mount Everest....
A nice climb up Mt. Rainer (14,410'), this weekend via Paradise and Camp Muir. We are all systems go for Mt. Everest in a few weeks...The altitude was no problem.
Over 7,200' was all snow. And a lot of it. Some cool snowboarder chicks hiked all the way up to Muir at 10,000' to then went on down, I have to go back and do that.
Kevin and I ran up the hill. We covered the run from the snow line at 7,200' to Muir at 10,000' in about 3 hours. (Coming down was less than an hour, virtual skiing.)
I am now publically giving some credit to my running partner Kathleen. She meets me 3 days a week, rain or shine (and it seems to mostly rain), hung-over or not (even if I was the cause of her hangover the night before), and likes to run fast. She also motivates me or rather likes to yell at me when I am dogging it saying things like "How are you going to get up Everest if you can't make it around the loop!" Thanks, I owe you one..
Photos up soon...
