Arrived a little after 6 and it was freaking packed. I had to park nearly a half mile away from the trailhead. It was really humid and a ton of people on trail. A little slower than I would have liked to do it but oh well. The second half is always so humbling.

Holy Geeze this was a rough obstacle course race. We started at 9:30 and finished around 4:30 maybe. It was over 100 degrees with a lot of climbing and obstacles. A lot of people were dropping from heat exhaustion. So many people dropped that they cancelled the race for tomorrow. I had a great time and would love to do another Spartan race at this distance.

Nice and shady out this morning and not very many people. My first time on this section of national, box canyon and, los lomitas. The big rain definitely did some damage to these trails. This is a very nice loop.

This one is a little tough in the beginning. I felt good today though. Did a little bit of running for the first time in about 2-3 months. Great hike with my pops.

This was a really long hot 10 miles. Only my second hike of this distance. First time on this trail it was a pretty good workout. Saw one blacktail rattler.

Nice hike to keep the legs stretched out after Humphreys yesterday. Saw some coyotes. It was real humid out. This is one of my favorite hikes at SoMo.

WOOOOHOOOOO. I wanted to do this one a couple weeks ago with some friends but couldnt make it due to them both being injured. Then last week we ended up doing Hortons Creek. So finally me and Pops were able to make it up today. We hit the trail at about 5:45 with a few people ahead of us. We got by them in the first mile or so and had the trail all to ourselves. Once we got to the saddle it got a little windy. We then started up the first false summit. The mile after the saddle seemed to be the toughest mile for me. we made it up to the real summit in 2hrs 29mins and the fog set in pretty thick and obstructed most of the far visibility. We start encountering people shortly after we left the summit. There was a ton of people. The tortoises only got past by two runners on the way down though :y: . This was my first hike breaking 10miles and my first hike at real high elevation. It was amazing. :y:

Beautiful weather this morning for a hike. No sun at all. A few little drops of rain. Probably the best hiking weather this month. And broke 50,000 aeg with this one.

Took a little drive with pops up north today. I wanted to do something a little cooler and at higher elevation. It was some good climbing but it was real beautiful. Loved this hike. Good company as well.

Good hike today. Most of the time in the shade or overcast. The last couple of miles were pretty warm but other than that all good.

It is hot out and I'm out of shape. I was reluctant to post my time in fear of Bob and Joe "I'm not competitive" Bartels heckling me and voting me off of HAZ. Good exercise though.

Another south mountain trail crossed off the list. Good weather but pollution was real bad. Always a good time with pops though.
