Bolder Boulder 2018

This past Monday on Memorial Day we ran the Bolder Boulder, it was my 6th (I think), Leighton’s 4th, Clint’s 2nd, and Caedmon’s 1st. Leighton and I ran together because he qualified for a faster wave and Clint and Caedmon went together. It was the perfect running day as well, it started out cool and…

Collegiate Peaks Trail Run 2018

Sometimes in life I have really great ideas. Other times….well not so much. After finishing Imogene Pass Run last fall I decided I wanted a spring race and I wanted it to be pretty and not too long. Not too specific but those were my criteria. So in my google searching I stumbled upon the…

Putting the Miles In…

In just a little over a month I’ll be running up some mountains for a trail marathon. I haven’t run a marathon since 2007 and the running part of that was questionable at best as I struggled from mile 13 on and walked a good portion of that race. So I haven’t attempted a marathon…

Running Doubts…

I am two weeks into my trail marathon (or 25.4 mile race which is close enough to a marathon I just call it that) training. It has been a long time since I trained for a distance that long, and when I did last train for a marathon I can’t really say I trained that…

Running Mountains Again….

Well I’ve done it again….registered for a long trail race/run. I’ve really enjoyed running Imogene Pass the past couple of years, but I wanted/needed something to run in the spring. In the past Clint and I have done the Colfax 1/2 marathon, but honestly I get real tired of running on pavement and up a…

Up And Over Again….

The weekend after Labor Day is going to start becoming a tradition for me…the last two years I have spent it running up and over Imogene Pass in south west Colorado from Ouray to Telluride with about 1200 or so other crazy people.  I trained differently this year, more endurance and longer distance runs. Granted…

Running On No Sugar…

So I’m about a month into the no sugar thing. How’s it going you might ask….well today instead of ordering white chicken with my rice bowl I told the lady taking my order that I wanted white chocolate….oops. And the other day when Clint came home from the store I asked him what sweet things…

On The Trail Again…

Well I must have caught the bug last year at Imogene, because I was crazy enough to sign up again this year. And I registered in time to make the cut off, I think it filled in less than 30 minutes. And so my feet are going to put in lots of miles in the…

Bolder Boulder 2017-He Did It!

As Leighton and I loaded up Monday morning for the Bolder Boulder at 5:45AM I knew it was going to be a day of lessons. It was either going to be a lesson on how hard work and perseverance pay off and goals are met, or it was going to be a lesson on how…

Bolder Bouldering Along…

Memorial Day 2017 is almost here which means it is almost time for America’s favorite race, the Bolder Boulder. This is the 38th year that the Memorial Day Bolder Boulder has been run through the streets of Boulder, Colorado and it will be my 5th race, and Leighton’s 3rd race. This year he decided that…
