Distance: 10 miles
Weather: Sunny & warm
Easy 10 miles from the west edge of Crested Butte along the Lower Loop and on the (gulp) Nordic ski trails groomed just above the Slate River. The groomed surface was firm enough to be great to run on. Just a bit of cushion. From there, I headed back through town, then up the Kebler Pass road a couple of miles to where it dead ends at a snowmobile staging area (they groom the road up and over the pass, plus the road up to and beyond Lake Irwin for snowmobiles). I returned down the road the way I came.
Felt great to be out on such a perfect spring day in the mountains. CB is dead right now. This was the last week of skiing and all the spring breakers had returned to school (the prefect time to visit w/ elementary school-aged kids).
Been slacking these past couple of days. Decided not to sweat it and count it as a bit of down time to let the new(ish) right foot ache/injury heal up. Plan on getting in a long run or two in Taos tomorrow or Saturday.
