Lost Lake Breath of Life Race

Saturday was our final mountain race of the season, the Lost Lake race outside Seward. The whole course is 16 miles, starting with 5 miles of steady climbing up to Lost Lake, then a few miles of undulating trail around morraines and lake shores, finishing with 6 miles of glorious downhill that, if you have the legs, you can hit at break-neck speeds.

We didn't really have a goal for this race except to have fun and beat the time required to qualify for next year's Crow Pass Crossing (we are already pre-qualified because we ran the race this year so it was more of a do-it-for-fun kind of thing). Chester, Andrea, and I met this goal with change to spare and had a great time along the way.

Respective times:
Chester - 2:08:22
Aaron - 2:10:59
Andrea - 2:27:38
