At the start with Pikes Peak
poking out in the background.

This photo proves that I actually ran parts of the ascent.

Running through Manitou Springs

Climbing Barr Trail. It was this
crowed for the first 5 or 6 miles.

At tree line. 

Two miles from the summit. Spectacular views!

I love this view of the trail.

The summit is in view. But still a mile to go.
The last mile to the top took me about 30 minutes.

Views like this make you forget it's so hard to breathe. Almost.

Trying to sneak in some running at 13,000' feet.

Climbing. Climbing. Climbing.

What, still climbing?

Turnaround point!

You really do feel like you're on top of the world.

Glad to have survived the mountain.


Keep running!
