Vocabulary Improvement


I have made additions to my vocabulary this week.  Words like:

scree


snow pack


glissade


talus

marmot

Before this week, I had no real reason to worry about scree.  Or 5,000 feet climbs.  Or whether I could breathe at all, at 14,000 feet.

I think I have finally gotten my jaw to close and wiped the drool off my chin.





I haven't been writing on the blog since I have been busy surfing the web, looking at pictures, and giggling, thinking, whee, I will be the runner out there!
And then more comprehension, with more reading, sinks in.Virginius Pass. Handies. Grant Swamp Pass. Talus. Scree.Glissading. Snow Steps. River crossings.
A quote from some one's race report: "This ain't no EasyRock, this is Hardrock."


Oh my. Indeed it is.

  1. So psyched for you to run HardRock! Some of us WUSses were talking about what a strong, badass runner you are. You're gonna make us all so proud, just like you always do!
