Group shot--first wave of runners.
After taking about 40 photos at the top, I walked back down and snapped pictures of the rest of the runners in the second wave.
The last person to start up the hill was SFC Dale Shade on a mountain bike. I saw him as he rode up then again as he flashed past on the way down. We served together in Iraq. When I got back to the start I asked him if I could ride his bike to the top. He said "Sure."
It was soooooo much easier to ride up than to run. And faster. Especially coming back down.
