Who sets their alarm for 6am on a Saturday?

Anyone who plans to run a 5k, hike a 13er, then play 2 hours of tennis – talk about a jam-packed SUPER Saturday.

The intention is not to run and hike every remaining week of 2012 – just dumb luck last week’s 10 mile run in Louisville was scheduled back-to-back to the Waneka Classic 5K Fun Run in Lafayette (one of Ro’s regular weekly walks).  ALSO, today’s race supported Centaurus High School’s cross-country track team…so came out for a mighty good cause (local youth).  And come on…how many races are so close that you can walk there from home?  Absolutely no excuses this day.

I competed in the local Citizen’s Race (which kept all varsity track kids out of the field :)).  Stayed close and followed a guy named Dale before I blew past him at the 2-mile race marker.  Overall, finished 19th!

Ran home, showered, and packed for my next Saturday activity – week 36’s hike challenge starting at Loveland Pass.

Don’t expect another road race out of me again until early December – the ‘ColderBolder’.
