Leg #13: Low Gear

Matt and my second run was rated as "brutal" and after 4/10 of a mile of downhill, we quickly learned why.  The last 4.6 miles of our run was an incredibly steep, never ending climb.  Matt was a trooper and climbed the mountain without walking at all.  Jay... well not so much.  Rubber legs finally received a small consolation when the last tenth of a mile finally gave the runners a downhill to the finish.  Matt's 44 minute time was a testament to just how steep and long the climb (1,600 feet elevation gain) was on this leg.   Brutal?  Indeed....
