Pretty sweet that you can leave ghastly hot and humid Texas at 7:30 am and be in the mountains running by noon; even with traffic getting out of Denver.
I had a 14.4 mile jaunt at Dillon reservoir today. I have to say: my body is so different from a year ago. I've been struggling with various issues and these talk to me on long runs. I'm entered in a half marathon tomorrow. It won't be much of a race; just finish.
