I believe am not alone in the quest for starting off the year in the right direction, setting expectations through my initial run. Recovering from a late New Year's Eve and spending time with my family all morning, it wasn't till after three in the afternoon when I headed out with no real plans on a course except to just head up to the trails. With YakTrax in hand, I started slowly up to Bear Creek Trail below NCAR. The dirt service road was packed with snow
On a run a few weeks ago, I ran by a row of young trees lining a road that had failed to relinquish their leaves to the season. I thought it odd at the time, but given the warm weather, not surprising perhaps. Lately I've really been feeling the effects of living. The delicate balance of work, family, social, community and of course running isn't quite in-sync.
It seems in Boulder we have been waiting all year for it to snow. There have several false starts to our snowy season, but its been light at best. Until now. The social network has been all a twitter with updates about the snow. All the discussion was getting me pumped to get out.
Great opportunity to run a cross country race in downtown Denver. The course is a 2km grass loop in Wash Park. Men & Women will run at the same time, but women will be diverted to the finish after three laps (6k) and men will run four laps (8k)
