~22 myles ~3.45

Falcon Trail - 7:00 A.M.
teens to start - 30s to finish, clear, snow trails
mind/body - refreshed
easy effort

Drove down to the Springs this morning to meet up with the CRUD group. And what a group it was, probably 20 or so - largest I've seen. Turns out this morning another group called the Sunrise striders came out to join the run to bolster the numbers. Like I said, bitter cold to start but once we hit the first aid station... yep that's right - aid station on a training run! Rick Hessek had liposuction surgery so he and John Genet were driving around meeting us with water, bars, and gels. Pretty cool I'd say. As I was saying once we hit the Hessek aid station it warmed up nicely and turned out to be a great day.

We started on the Santa Fe trail and then hooked up with the Falcon trail that is on the Air Force Academy. What a nice trail it was too. It's basically a 13 mile loop trail that meanders through the trees, cuts through the golf course, skirts the football stadium, and crosses a few roads. It was really refreshing to be on single track dirt trails again. I'll be back for sure.
