Last Saturday I went up the Grouse Grind. The last time I did it, was back in 1998, over 10 years ago. I didn't find it as hard before as I did last Saturday, either the grind trail got more difficult or I am just getting older....or both! But I had a good time still, it's always a great feeling to know you finished the hike. I finished it in an 1 hour 35 minutes. Sure, there were a lot of other people who came after me that finished way before I did, but it doesn't matter, as long as I finished it as well.
