Before the run started, we took a ride to see for ourself what we should be expecting. We were definitely intimidated by the steep climbs and never ending hills. We came back to an over look area and waited there for a little and then realized that we should probable drive back to the mile marker where we were going to begin the climb. We got there and saw that the other group had been waiting on us so we had to jump out of the car and start running. None of us was ready for this at all. We started our journey of the 5 mile up hill run. We passed some bikers who cheered us on then we passed this lady screaming at us to get off the road. Around each bend we prayed for a downhill but to our dismay none came...ever. We highly debated running straight off the side of the mountain just to put ourselves out of our misery. We all pushed through the pain, cursing at ourselves for doing this idiotic run. We finally came to the end and felt so accomplished! The pain sweat and tears were totally worth it!
