AM- Met Justin at Blue Wall on the Palmetto trail, same place we ran in Feb. Had a good run- lots of climbing the first third past fresh bear scat, lots and lots of overgrown plants the second third (stinging nettle, briars, thorns- very painful on the legs), and beautiful singletrack the last third to the turnaround just before 10 miles. 2 miles before the end, I turned around and added 1.35 more miles climbing and 1100 extra feet climbing- I ran all of the uphill and felt strong, then ran down at a good pace. Not sure I'll do this route during the summer, though, since it is so overgrown- Justin and I alternated yelping in pain and growling at all the prickly plants. Tick infested, too- pulled 9 off me, 1 off Justin. Finished with 22 miles and 5500 ft climbing. Pictures on Justin's blog.
