Started hike at the mining camp TH at 7am. I set my sights on Flatiron, aiming to make this my fastest ascent. Shaved 4+ minutes off my personal best. 75:10 today from car to edge of Flatiron.

Had Flatiron all to myself. Took one photo from up top and immediately started to hustle back down. Passed by the masses who were starting to fill the trail on their way up, offering a congenial "good morning" to all along the way.

Reached my car at 02:07:08. 6+ minutes better than previous best. A sub 2-hour Flatiron attempt sounds very reachable...I can taste it. Improvement will have to happen on the uphill. I don't see much room for improvement on the downhill without getting dangerous.

This is my gym. I have to travel down a bumpy road to get there. There are no treadmillls, no machines, and no personal trainers. I walk..I run..I breathe the fresh air. I can go any time I want, as much as I want and there is no membership fee.
