Leg #18: Thankful For The Dark
Leg 3 for Jacob and Jay was another uphill adventure! The climb was a brutal five miles up Mount Mitchell, the highest point in North Carolina. Total climb was 1300 feet but thanks to dark, overcast skies, and a steady rain / a torrential downpour, we only had 5 feet of visibility. That made a miserable run way more bearable because we couldn't see what lay ahead..... We just kept trudging along semi-oblivious to the mountain we were scaling. Total time of the run 48 minutes. Three down and two to go.
