Day 2. 20km all-uphill run from the base of the mountain up to the fifth station. Elevation 2600m. Great weather, cooler and better for running...in theory, but my legs and knees are painfully swollen nonetheless. Waah.
Hiking to the top tomorrow. Packed lunches and gear, ready to go. If the weather's good and skies are clear, might be lucky enough to see the beach where we started running from. Will take pics if I do (if my legs survive the hike). Later on (and possibly, farewell!)
