iRunFar: Bonus question because I’ve been looking at it all morning. Is this THE Casio from the finish-line photos from the last couple years?
Miller: This is THE Casio. I bought this in Madeira for $5.
iRunFar: This is relatively new? This is not like you had this in high school?
Miller: No, because when I trained for Madeira, I trained without a watch. I used the cabin clock. I just looked and came back and looked. If it wasn’t long enough, I went back out. When I got to Madeira, I had no watch to check my nutrition with, so that’s why I wear it.
iRunFar: It’s not old enough to have a name or anything like that?
Miller: No, it doesn’t have a name. It’s just, “The Casio.”
Okay guys, I’m all about my old school Casio watch and my “cabin clock” training, but I thought some of you might like seeing what sort of stuff I’ve been up to on this mountain these past five years. The trails on Pikes Peak are pretty endless and there are so many awesome routes you can create. Here is what I did today. I’m calling it the “Three Amigos”. According to my All Trails App (no GPS watch) it’s a 26.6 mile route with 6,309 feet of climbing. It summits three of the big peaks that lie to the south of Pikes Peak: Almagre, Baldy, and Rosa. The route starts and ends at Barr Camp but could be done from the Frosty’s Park Trailhead as well.
