"Agony Hill Time Trial served as the second of two intensity workouts. It consists of roughly a 1500’ vertical run/speed hike up a ridgeline just north of the University of Utah. The weather was ideal for Salt Lake City with early morning temperatures in the 70’s and pretty good air quality. The junior athletes threw down some great times, despite the big week of training. While only one male athlete recorded a time under 16 minutes four years ago at this same camp (Glen Randall 14:49), this year six boys broke 16 minutes! It was a similar situation for the girls. In 2004 three girls posted sub 20 minute times, and this year there were six. It was great to see that these athletes are raising the bar, and as a group coming into this camp more fit. For the boys, Alex Taylor (Far West/Williams College) posted the top time of the day in 14:45 and the third fastest time ever run by a junior."
