TTR Tortolita Mountains Run

Tricia showed up, or I would have been the only gal!

Distance: 14.66 miles
Elevation gain: 2,910 feet
Time: 3:32

This is a hard run. Up Wild Burro, around Wild Mustang, up Alamo Springs, down Wild Burro. Tortolita mountains have a lot of 'step ups/step downs' which are tiring. I always feel slow on that type of terrain.

Pretty uneventful run, but it is pretty out there. Quite a few decaying saguaros, maybe from the cold snap last winter? Dallas got off course, came in an hour and 20 minutes after me. He probably ran 20+ miles.  I was worried that he may have fallen out there and was hurt. So relieved when he showed up.
