6000

Yesterday I did a 20 mile trail run that had 6000 feet of gross elevation gain. Half of that was in the second five miles. Completely unplanned and totally sick. The top of Mt. Diablo just didn't seem that far away. Running through a mid-calf-deep stream that criss-crossed the trail 10 times at the bottom of the mountain felt great. I can't say that my quads are happy today, but I promise you that I'm going to do that again within the next two weeks.

Your feet were not impacted by the water and running?

I figured you would get pretty raw - fast!

I have a pretty good visual, but you need to take a few pics. I know it is not practical... but requests can be submitted!

Good running shoes and socks wick and drain water away very quickly. After running through the streams, I ran another 4 miles without any issues.
