On September 25 I did the grouse grind for the first time and I will remember it for a long time. It was amazing and I didn't think we would have to climb up rocks and over fallen tree trunks. when I walked through then gate I hit start on my timer. For me the first quarter was the easiest at the half way mark my legs hurt so much that it felt like I got shot in both my legs. Me and my friend were almost side by side for the whole run.When I saw the light at the top When I was near the end I could here my friends cheering me on and saying the finish was right there. When I crossed the finish line I was shocked that I got a time of 1 hour and 3 minutes. Now I am just happy that I made it up to the top alive.
