Mount Sanitas Madness

My buddy Fred is out on Mount Sanitas in Boulder doing 48 hour of Sanitas with the loose goal of doing 30 laps or just over 100 miles with a shit ton of climbing.  I had one vacation day that I had to use or lose by the 19th of this month so I took the day off to go play on the some trails.

We started about 8:10 am and just hiked along.  The first two laps the 3 of us stayed together telling stories and enjoying such a beautiful  spring day.  After those first two laps we all kind of spread out and went at our own paces.  Ashley even came out about noon and did a lap with me.  Love it.

In case you are not familiar with Mount Sanitas you can look at the info here and here.

I tapped out after crossing over the 20 mile mark.  It has been months since I have hit 20 in a run and I want to be careful with how quick I build up.  Keeping going to 30 or 40 would not be smart considering what I just did and still am over coming.  You can read about that here if you don't know to what I am talking about.

I ended the day with 20.8 miles and 8500ft of gain.  Not a bad way to spend a Friday.

Love this elevation profile.

Little trashed but not to bad, especially after spending the evening drinking beers at BJs, that always helps.  Tomorrow will be an easy flat 5 miles to recover and Sunday morning is back to Green Mountain.

If your bored Fred should still be out there and would love the company, especially at night.

Update 9:10pm--- Text from Fred "Dude I developed a serious case of the fuck-its and bailed.  I am at home eating ice cream."  LOL.


  1. Glad I don't own your quads for the next couple days!

  2. Thanks bud. My hips are what is killing me this morning.

  3. Going to be an easy walk/jog at the dog park for me today.

  4. I should have done this rather than Green on Friday! Ah, Sanitas. That sweet girl to the north.
