roughly what we traversed
On the plus side ... I wasn't even winded from the trip. True, we took some breaks, but for the most part we walked at a relatively quick pace for nearly 2.5 hours. So I think I can tackle the Manitou Incline within the next few weeks (if my nephew Alex is up for it) and I look forward to running on relatively flat terrain with my sister Jaimee in preparation for a 5K in October (to support fallen officers). So it wasn't a total loss. :)
