Distance: 8.41 miles
Weather: Sun and cool
Workload today was manageable and the sun was out, so I had time today for a fine jog from the Flatiron Vista trailhead, complete with the usual outstanding views of the Flatirons and Eldorado Canyon.

|Sign at beginning of Spring Brook Loop - note the Muddy Trails Meter|
This is a tough time of year for trails. It's human nature to want to avoid mud/water. Unfortunately, the result is widening or braided trails.
|The trail tread is still under snow here. See new trail being made on the left.|

I felt a bit of fatigue in the legs from yesterday's run, but nothing significant. Had to remind myself regularly to ease up and keep the easy day easy. Hard to do on this run given the moderate grades and great scenery.
