2009 Poor Mountain Hill Climb

Our new team sponsor helped out with some door prizes.

Moe, Angelia and Laura workin' the sign-laden registration table.

Laura, Me, Pookie and Kristin taking a break in the perfect fall weather.

Wake reviewing the pre-race instructions with the youngsters before the kid's race.

The young 'uns had an awesome time on the challenging mountain bike course. They seemed to have a much better time than their adult counterparts who raced uphill for 6 3/4 miles.

I made friends (thank goodness) with a canine version of Sasquatch.

Some classic hardware, perfect for hill climbin'!

All smiles before the suffering began.

In the end it was Anina Adrian and Robert Marion as the overall winners on the day. Robert set a blistering pace to complete the nearly 7 mile climb in just over 39 minutes. For those of you who are not familiar with Poor Mountain, here's a pic. (It ain't anywhere near easy)
