I set out today to tackle Rose Peak once again. I hiked it a couple years ago, but haven’t done it since I’ve been running. It behooves me to practice it, since it’s 1/3 of the Ohlone 50K.

I set out at 9am (dang it DST!) and got to the peak in 2h30m. Took only a little less time to get back to the parking lot. Compared with the last time, I knocked 3 hours off my personal best (har!).

Loving Strava’s calorie counter (5165kcal)…

Here’s a 360 degree view from the top of Rose Peak… <iframe height=640 width=640 src=”http://360.io/7nZRMy”></iframe> It doesn’t show up in the pano, but I could see the Sierras from the summit there. Super clear day!

Bring the 50K!
