Some of you may recall that this is one of four "classic Boulder runs" I tried to complete last spring before launching into marathon training. I got three of the four done, including a two-hour jaunt on the Mesa Trail. It's a wonderful place to run, especially in October when it's still warm and dry (but not TOO warm or dry). And I'm pleased to say that on yesterday's excursion I felt so much stronger than I did last spring. One day later, I have no soreness, whereas last time I felt as though I had done a race. A good sign!
After we had finished, Wendy and I went to the Boulder Farmers' Market, had lunch, picked up some treats for later--and she took this video of me hula hooping (still in my running clothes). Hope you all had as fun a weekend as we did!
