Way to go, Joe! Inspirational story.

Comment by Joe Grossi on August 14, 2012 at 12:57pm

Well I did the incline for the first time last week just 7 weeks after my open heart surgery aortic valve replacement and finished about 55 min.  Used to do it in under 35 min but I will get back there in time.

Great work Michael x3 is fun and that's a great time!! I like the incline because it makes one a better climber on the steep trails ... And a better downhill runner as well.

New PR 28:32. My Oklahoma friend got here this morning and has only done the Incline about 5 times- all last summer. He did a 26:14!! Smokin.

what are the female 65+ running? Incline only.

Comment by Michael Capshaw on July 20, 2012 at 2:41pm
