If you watch track and field, you’ll find all sorts of running events: sprints, middle-distance, long-distance, marathons, and ultra-marathons.  But this summer I was introduced to something I’d never seen or heard of, a vertical kilometer.  My b-i-l was participating, so we all rolled out of bed early, heading for the mountains near Gérardmer, France.  As you can see from his photo below, it was cold and foggy when we arrived very early and no inviting place nearby to get a hot drink.  My s-i-l and I decided we’d leave after the race started to get some coffee or tea and a pastry.  🙂
