The ice was all but a distant memory, the wind was barely noticeable, the temperatures were in the high 50s, and we had daylight the whole way up. With (almost) perfect conditions for the first Towers time trial of the spring season, we had a record 13 runners register personal records, four guys run under 30 minutes, and the issuance of a serious threat-down from Steph Lynn to Jenn Malmberg’s FKT.
In total, 34 runners started out from the Soderberg trailhead, six of them new to the hill, which means 46 percent of the Towers veterans posted a PR. Impressive stuff folks. And we still have six determined runners batting 1.000 for 2012.
We’ll be back to do it all over again in two weeks.
