There's a guy that's done the grind 1406 times in total. Dude is a fucking machine

Got 1:02 tonight. I don't know if it's the first day of summer or what, but the grind was packed to the tits! Gondola ride was like a can of sardines, and the lineup to buy gondola tickets wrapped all the way to the lobby lol

^ yeah the grind has definitely gotten more busy most likely because the weather is getting a little better lately.

57:52 today. 4 seconds off of my personal best. I am super happy with it as I did my p90x legs/back workout before I went.

Havent been in years and years and years

1:19 and I had to throw my pack of cigarettes out at the halfway mark, I couldn't help myself, It was pretty depressing.

I don't care what anyone says, but that's a pretty good time

Focus on finishing it the very first time, that way you'll know what to expect the next time and you can set an appropriate pace for yourself. Dress comfortable, bring water, don't over hydrate during the actual hike, and try not to rest to long because it takes some effort to start again once you rest too long.

Hit my first grind this year before work this morning, 50:42.
Hopefully this year I can get anything under 45.

Don't stop is my advice. If you need to rest, just slow down, taking steps slowly. Keep moving to keep your muscles going, as well as your motivation and 'momentum' up. First time, def just finish so you know what you're going up against before you really start to giv'r.

New personal best of 47:46. Chasing down the damned 45 minute mark.

I am moving upto Vernon in a week.
Looks like I'm not gonna break the 40 marker this year.
PB is still 40:56 from earlier this year.
Will try to come back down for the BMO race.

Just finished the race
49.Xx (official time might be just over 50 not sure yet)
Nothing to brag about time wise
But considering I took a 2 month break when I went to vernon...I'm happy
Pb is still 40:56 from earlier this year
Goal for next year is to get under 45 for the final year end race
And crack 40min for the grind
