Go Time! Alarms went off and we were all set to get going!! Left the hotel just after 2:30am & due to road construction in GC village, took the “long way” around to get to Bright Angel trailhead!🙄But, we got there and it was so cold with the wind. I reassured them that the weather would be perfect once we dropped below the rim...which it did and our shorts and compression socks were ideal!! We reached the Colorado River just as the sun was rising and stopped at Phantom Ranch to top off our water since we weren’t sure if there would be any more available the rest of the run. We pushed on through the lovely Box Canyon & the rolling hills of the inner canyon. We passed through Cottonwood (no water) and stopped at Manzanita for water! So glad it was on there! Then the nice climb up NK. It’s amazing to watch the landscape change from desert, to juniper, to pines and snow. That feeling of reaching the North Rim is like no other...although we were only half way done! It still revives the soul! We enjoyed Coconino Outlook & the visibility was good despite the clouds. Such a view! We zipped right back down & saw @rjeffreydavis & @sam.jewkes as they zipped faster down the N rim!😁. Didn’t really stop until we reached Phantom Ranch. I suggested they bring some money if they wanted to buy some lemonade or snacks. Rhandi and I bought some lemonade and I mixed mine with some tea...that looked like sludge.🤔I thought it was fine, but it really wasn’t fine until it came back up and was completely out of my system!🤮Yep, there’s a first for everything and that’s the first time I’ve ever thrown up on a run. However, I had just popped a piece of @rungum in my mouth and that saved me! Nice fresh breath and a dose of caffeine for the climb! I was so grateful that my body felt so good after that!! Like a new woman!😂#whatafeeling We enjoyed a beautiful afternoon and sunset as we climbed & climbed. Looking back, the view was unbelievable!! It looked like a painting!! Gorgeous colors all around! We made it out of the Canyon around 7pm, froze on the rim due to the wind, changed and headed to the Maswik for some food! Burgers & extra pickles did the trick! So good! What a day!!
