So yesterday was so very Incredible and very In Porten day for me i did the 2018 Pikes Peak Ascent. I will be the only person in my family at i will do it nobody else a 13.32 miles up to the top of the summit. I was so little bit nervous and I got this. Everyone from yesterday is so very excited to go up  to the top of Pikes Peak this will be three and final race for the triple crown challenge of this summer. It start at Manitou Springs and climb over 7,815 feet and go up to 14,115 foot of Pikes Peak. Put unfortunately the bed news is we did not go up do to the bed weather up in the mountain so i was little upset i been training so very heard for this moment. this happen before in 2008. Put the good news the race continues on put this will be a half ascent a 7.3 miles up to Barr Camp which at is good on a race like this. so at way everybody there day of the race at way for safety for the runners. the race start at 7:00 am we run on the street of Manitou Springs and than off to the trail.
