Uphill time trial!

The juniors tested their might against Mt. Wachusett today, on a lovely day with scattered clouds and low humidity.  So rare, this time of year!  The course went up the auto road, counter-clockwise to the summit, avoiding the overflow parking extra bit of downhill.  A tough test, but everyone made it through, and I even heard chattering and laughter as we came down the trail!

I know I saw Gunther and Tom and Jeff out there running hard, too, but apparently they removed their times from the list in order not to embarrass any of the younger runners!

After the first ascent, J1s and older were allowed to do a second interval, so a hearty crew of Eli, Nate, Sean, Jimmy, Chris, Hannah, Meg, Rebecca, Hadley, and Rosie braved the climb again!  To most people's surprise, a lower effort (more in the L3 range) didn't yield that much slower a time - much to be learned from the pacing of this beast.  

A huge thank-you goes to David Brams, John LaChance, Matthew Meyerson, Alan McEwen, Jody Newton, Steve Moreau, Kate Yoder, Ann Burnham, and probably some others who I've unintentionally left out, for their help with the timing and the cheering!  And the biggest thanks is to Ann for the watermelon after the second ascent of the mountain.
