Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger

Options are to collapse, or to cry, or to vomit, because the only thing that exists in each of these steps is a pure and unadulterated burning pain.  This is movement, this is upward motion faster and steeper than anything I can remember, and this is gravity holding our bodies down with their own suffocating weight.  A beautiful vista has erased from my mind entirely, replaced by a constant reiteration of capacity: keep. moving.  We left at 1:11 and after 3.8 miles straight up, we reached our peak at 2:18.  If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s to go faster.
