Running 2:22:00  16.8 km (8:27 / km) +1650m 5:40 / km
Stunning alpine run - run of the year probably. From Guillestre at 1150m to Pic d’Escreins at 2734m. First 3.5km had 900m climb - also very hot. Then it got nice and Zigzaggy in pines to what I thought would be the high point of the run... But the next peak tempted me so I carried on and it was proper good high alpine mountain paths to the top. Views were incredible - phone died so no photos but I stopped a while to take it all in. On the descent I saw the only other human for the whole run - a paraglider 50m above me - we waved at each other and I yelled hello forgetting I was in France. We both would have felt pretty free. Saw a few marmots. Fun descent on a better path that was less steep.
