Ed joined me for a cool down, he ducked out just before the summit becuase he was dehydrating. I didn't know this or I'd offer him my Tea with Heed, which he may have refused as Hammer stuff doesn't sit well with him. It was a nice relaxing climb. The race and the ease of the second lap really gave me a secure sense of my fitness for Mt. Washington. I'll continue to run plenty of hills, but set no records. Plenty of speedy running from now until then with the 10k and the little races. I don't feel the need for a long run at this point.
