Actual Visit: Several times over a 2 year span while in CO.
First time doing this and I was absolutely exhausted but proud to had made it to the top in a decent time. Each time after I tried to beat the previous time. You see people of all ages out there and on a few visits there is a guy that will do it 2x in one day and will lap you. There are even school sports teams that come out and do it together. I usually hike up and run the trail back down. Not only is it a good workout but the views are amazing, in some ways it's relaxing, and you can chat with people along the way. Do not do this without a water source!!! And if you can, carry a small snack with you to munch on so you're not feeling completely depleted.
