Wednesday (20,484 steps) - Runners Roost Boulder run club!
Saturday (25,953 steps) - Up at 3:45 to go hiking! We got to Lisa's house just after 4:30 and drove up to Buena Vista/Leadville for our first hike/14er of the year. Lisa had picked Mt. Belford, mainly because the trail head would be accessible for her car (not a surprise that many of the 14ers require a high clearance vehicle, which neither of us has). This was one of the toughest ones we have climbed to date. Over 4500' of climbing, and not THAT long comparatively. For some reason both of us thought it was 3.5 miles each way, turns out it was almost 4.5. I think this was the best marked of any of the ones we have climbed, there were a lot of switchbacks (instead of just going straight up), and not a lot of scree.
|I think this was my favorite picture of the day - taken on the way down after leaving the switchbacks|
Sunday (28,985 steps) - The "best" part about training for your "A" race in the summer? Not having to get up early. I managed to sleep until 8:30, had a quick breakfast, then went out for my 10 mile run at the ungodly hour of 9:45. It was hot, but I've learned that once you're already hot, it really doesn't get "hotter" - (as long as you aren't starting in like 50 and ending up at 90. Start at 85 and 90 isn't that much different).
|Hey, goats again!!|
|Yes, this was the only picture I took at the festival (and it's even my cooler!)|
|Only picture (and I actually took it at home) - the backpack A got for being a super volunteer|
|I'm in the back because I barely got there in time for the picture... can you spot my head? lol|
|Sean & A on the summit (I'm in the bottom right if you look hard enough!)|
