Mendon Ponds 50K

Going into Mendon Ponds 50K this Saturday I was skeptical of the published elevation numbers for the course.  I'd hiked the trail before and didn't have an impression of it as really hilly, so I just didn't see how it could actually have 1100' of climb per 10K loop.

On the way home I told Karen that I now believe every foot of it - individually.
