On the mountaintop: Looking down at Monticello

Yesterday was the Montalto 5K, which starts at Monticello (elev. 700 feet) and then goes uphill for 700 feet until you reach the top of Montalto, which looks down a fair distance at Monticello's mountaintop.

Did I walk? 

You bet I did; there are seven (7) switchbacks on the course and I made it through the first four before walking uphill for a bit (I didn't lose much ground to the peeps ahead of me who were doing a simulation of jogging very slowly).

I pulled myself together and ran the final switchback.

Below, the extended version.
