I am obsessed...already.
Hubby, canine and equine children just moved to the beautiful state of Colorado. We have been utterly enjoying the hikes and trails Colorado has to offer.
I have always liked running, but get easily bored with the environment. Recently, I began doing intervals up Mt. Cutler - still feverishly trying to get adjusted to the altitude...or at least, that is my current excuse. Surely, I will have to come up with something else shortly. I was curious about the events Cheyenne Mountain has to offer and came across the Cheyenne Mt Run in October. I was intrigued. Fortunately, the organization offers a 5k. Assuming I could master anything beyond at this point would have been laughable. Then, I hooved it over to REI to get a better water system, conducive to running. At the check out lane, the obligatory magazine rack came into view, and I noticed the Trail Runner magazine. My new obsession has run amok since then. Not having been able to pry myself off the web, looking for more runs, I have now also signed up for the Creede Mtn run in Sept - mind you, the 2 miler - again, anything beyond that would be met with ridicule, by me even. So, here I am. I finished my first training this morning, watching the optimum heart rate, as recommended by veteran trail runners. I am hooked, I tell you. HOOKED>
