Way to Go Climbers!
Karen: Since I’m turning 60 this year, I decided that I should climb l’Alpe D’Huez to celebrate. I’m training to climb it in July.
Brent: My daughter and I have been training each week with a climb up the Three Witches (San Dieguito Road). The goal is to get a better time each week so we’ll be able to sail up that hill when the event happens. Three weeks so far, and the goal has been met so far. We also going to include Torrey Pines once a month.
