Notes: A final trail run in preparation for next weekends Leadville Trail Marathon. Started with both feet on the pavement at the main parking lot (next to the bathrooms). 6:10 to the creek crossing, 22:40 to the top of the bench (where the trail does a sharp hairpin turn and has a big cairn and stick in the ground), 59:48 to the summit and 1:38:04 for the RT. Ran to the summit rock, stood on it, touched it with my hands and then started the descent, didn‘t spend any time on the summit. FYI - if you are trying for a fast Bierstadt time, don‘t do it on a weekend! Must have passed ~200 other climbers, some of whom did not want to move off the trail.
