On Saturday, P.A.C.E. took a group up to the summit of Little White for the first time. This location can be tricky in a clinic environment for a few reasons, which is why we have held off in the past. The first reason is because athletes need to be able to cover 20k, 3000+ feet, 3-4.5hrs and the summit is at 7,000 feet. Which for some is the highest they have been in terms of altitude.
Everyone did amazing. I don't think I have seen so many smiles on a long run ever before. And trust me, we smile lots on the P.A.C.E. scene! It was a highlight for many, including me.
Many athletes have been working towards Squamish 21k and 50k, so this was the last of the big training runs before the race in approx. 12days.
