Distance: 10 miles
Weather: Clear & Warm
Easy 10 miles around the Boulder Reservoir and the South Valley Ranch loop. Average pace 7:30. Just 296 feet of elevation gain. Felt good to run on this relatively flat, low elevation dirt route.
Signed up today for the Pike Peak double...the ascent and marathon. I was on the fence right up to registration time as to whether or not to sign up for both races. I kept meaning to think more about what I wanted to do, but never got around to giving it much thought. At the last minute, I decided it would at least be an interesting challenge. The three times I have run the ascent, I had a great time. So, with the double, I guess it'll be twice the fun, with a healthy dose of suffering to go along with it. August sure seems like a long way off.
JM also is doing a double at Pikes.
