Wanted to start the year out with a bang.  This meant hooking up with Oreo and tackling Grandeur Peak Loop.  He had never done it, so wanted to take him up.  As usual the first 2 miles are a never ending slogfest on a steep vertical stair stepper.  Beautiful views and blue sky with no wind.  hotter than we expected.  Sweating like a beast.  Backside was sweet.  No falls today.  Tired and out of gas by the end but feel good.  

Cascadia 6 Big Miles: 10.50

First two miles very sore quads and low energy from yesterday's Grandeur pounding, but then things loosened up and I felt good.  Just a spin around the neighborhood in the fine spring weather.  Good news too, I went to the Ortho doc and found I have no fractures or significant strains in wrist from fall on ice last month, just nagging pain which I can deal with.
