Daniels Park - 8:00 AM
50s, wet, overcast
mind/body - ready to go
Finally a break in the weather. Still overcast and mostly muddy on the trails so I had to stick to the roads. I intermixed 6 x 30 second pick ups over the course of this run, just wanted to see if the legs had any turn over left - still got some.
I'm really getting excited to get back to the San Juan's, especially the Colorado Trail. Yesterday I refreshed the old blog and while doing so I filtered through hundreds of photos of the Colorado Trail from last September. Man! Got the juices flowing again. The San Juan Solstice course travels along the CT for about 10 myles up on the CDT going in the opposite direction I went. It should bring back a flood of memories which (I hope) will spur me on the second 1/2 of the race.
One such picture of the CT in the San Juan's
