A big lolloipop loop around Cronin Peak with several bicentennial 13ers and lots of time high on ridges.
Christy and I went to Twin Lakes to run Mount Elbert last weekend, a favorite outing of ours and a pretty novel running experience considering it’s the tallest mountain in the state.
The usual trail races are coming up (Lake City, Hardrock) so Christy and I are trying to make the annual rapid transition from skiing to running. It always feels kind of last minute-- a recent sprained ankle didn't help-- but while I often complain to myself about the lack of time to get properly prepared, I know deep down I really like it this way.

Even with a not-so-great start to the season, we're still pretty lucky that we can get out on a nice, long tour and enjoy the gorgeous scenery. With a random Monday off, and a need to unwind from the holidays, I took my cross-country...
Well at least that's my strategy when Christy and I line up at the start for the Steamboat Marathon this Sunday. I don't have a choice. After a great spring almost entirely dedicated to skiing, and with the approaching calendar stacked with some pretty tough running races-- the Bighorn 50 is in two weeks and Hardrock is a few weeks later just to name two-- I need to get some...
