Another great weekend of training for the Grindstone 100. Our son Chris came up for a visit this weekend and had the pleasure of participating in the training. We choose a long route up Mt. Washington. It was all walking, but good training to build our climbing skills for the 23,000 ft of elevation gain that we will encounter during the Grindstone. The route was the Great Gulf trail to Gulf Side trail to the summit of Mt Washington. At the summit we encountered wind gusts of over 30 MPH and bitter cold. We descended the Nelson Crag trail to the auto road from which we ran the final four miles back to the car.
