HellYes! Pikes Peak Here we Come!

Our Santa Cruz Track Club pod decided early this year that we wanted to do the Pikes Peak Half Marathon. Certainly the toughest half marathon I have every heard of. Over 7,000 ft of climbing, no downhill, and all in the "death zone" (OK, maybe a little over-wrought on that part) ending at 14,100 ft summit. We can't enter w/o submitting a recent half marathon qualifying performance under 2hr25min. The Hellyer Half Marathon in San Jose, along Coyote Creek, was the obvious choice, since race entry opens and closes in mid March.
