20 myles - 3.40

Boulder - 7:00 A.M.
50s, clear, mostly dry except ice on upper trails
mind/body - getting better
easy effort

Don't ask me the names of any of the trails we went on today beyond Mt. Sanitas and Red Rocks (Anemone?) because there were way too many trail junctions to remember.

Josh Brimhall is in town visiting friends while Nick Clark drove up from Ft. Collins so the proverbial middle would be Boulder. I've been on the trails in Boulder the most out of the three of us (a whopping 4 times) so I was assigned tour guide... I don't think these guys remember I missed a couple turns at a race a few weeks ago, do they? At any rate we managed to make our way round but there were lots of stops along the way. And if we weren't stopping to look at maps, we were tip-toeing our way down rock solid ice. I guess what I'm saying is that we essentially had no rhythm all day, the times we did it was comfortable and good conversation (except the climbing where I was just trying to hang on to those two). A total of 5500 ft of climbing with good company on a great spring day here in Colorado so how could I complain. Thanks for run guys! Look forward to many more.

On a side note, Geoff Roes won AR 50 today in a time of 5.49 with Andy Henshaw (Colorado Springs) close behind in 5.56 and rounding out the top 3 was Max King in 6.01. I'm telling you Andy Henshaw is fit and one to watch this year! Congrats guys!
