* 14,115 ft elevation
* The site of the Pikes Peak Hill Climb, where this year an Electric Car will be doing the Race (June 26th).
* The place where the Cog Railway climbs from Manitou Springs to the Summit. Weather permitting of course - as todays live photo proves that it is not running.

* The site of Pikes Peak Ascent (and Marathon) of which I am doing this year (August 20th).
So I ate my lunch yesterday at the Mesa Rd overlook and took the top photo - was made to wonder (regarding the Ascent) - Am I nuts?
Ran last night a Threshold type Run. First 2.5 miles at 9 min easy pace. Then 15 mins at 7 pace. 3 minutes walking recovery. Then 15 minutes at 7:15 pace. 1 minute recovery. Then 2.6 miles at 8:45 pace. Total 9.5 miles, 1 hr 19 mins.
