Day 7 – Wednesday, July 22

8315

Started out our day with a great 7.7-mile morning run with our daughter, Alison. That was a special treat for us. Enjoyed lunch at Twin Lakes. During our afternoon run, we faced a challenging section. We ran up and over Hope Pass, which peaks at 12,508 feet. Today’s 24.87 miles incorporated an elevation gain of 4,872 feet and a descent of 5,019 feet. The total time for the run was 10 hours and 47 minutes and we completed our run just before the rain started. Very thankful for our rain canopy as we hide under it and are protected from the pouring rain. What keeps us going each day is seeing how far we can push ourselves, proving the skeptics wrong, and, of course, helping kids.
