This was my third trip UP Cannon Mountain but my first hike back down. I raced the Top Notch Triathlon in 2009, 2010 and this year, 2011. I found out that my previous 2 trips up the mountain did not count for peak bagging because I had taken the tram down. This year I was determined to hike back down despite being completely exhausted after the mountain bike and swim portions of the race on top of the fast paced hike/run up the mountain. I’m sporting my bright orange “no northern pass” t-shirt in these not-so-flattering photos.
I managed second place for 50+. I’ll try harder next year! Here are the results:
