AM- ran from scout camp up the Mt Mitchell trail to meet the YM high adventure group finishing their 3 day backpacking trip. Passed all of them, kept going up, then passed most of them again on the way down. 8.2 miles, 2 hours. The trail is pretty dang technical for much of the distance. It gained 2700 ft in 4 miles, which is probably more vertical than I've had in a month since Western. My quads were sore by halfway down but held out ok till the end. Sore for a number of days afterwards. If I start doing trail races again, I'll definitely have to toughen them up. Good trail, I miss trails.
