In the past several posts I’ve made reference to a change in the focus of Kris’s training in the current block. As this block comes to an end (the last session is on Friday) we get an opportunity to make some quantitative comparisons.,
Well, Kris is now the second-fastest guy on record up mt Moosilauke. Except that he’s not on-record. He’d have to show-up when Ruff and Cami are actually timing the event in order to go on-record. And that may be on the agenda for this Fall...,
