Interesting... altitude sickness hit me pretty hard on my Mt. Whitney
climb, a week after my first triathlon ... OTOH while resting at 13,000' a
woman trotted past, training for the Badwater-to-Whitney Portal
ultramarathon.  She didn't seem to be suffering from much of anything, must
have been altitude conditioning.
