Grand Canyon R2R2R on the calendar

Chase, Andrew and I bought plane tickets to go to Las Vegas October 18th - October 22nd, with plans to drive down to the Grand Canyon and do the Rim to Rim to Rim run, one of the classic trail runs on our "Must Run" list. We'll stay at the Bright Angel Lodge on the South Rim on October 19th/20th and do the run on the 20th. I'm looking forward to it.

Now it is time to start running some hills, as I've fallen out of running shape the last few months. R2R2R is 12000+' of vertical gain, which is about the equivalent of four loops up Mount Si. Starting next week, we'll do a double loop of Mount Si every other Thursday to get some steep hill climbing practice on the schedule. I need to start putting in some base mileage as well.
