My wife has become quite the trail runner this fall. She trained for and ran the Bear Chase Half Marathon and then a week later I got her to join me running my favorite front range trails - Roxborough State Park.
It wasn't just a casual jog around the valley floor either, no we ran up Carpenter Peak AND did the Powerline Loop before heading back down! What a great afternoon it was!
|If you haven't already, you gotta check out the fall colors at Roxborough some year.|
|At points we were running in the summer heat...|
|At others we were in winter's deep freeze!|
|T. soaking in the reward of a running a peak.|
|The ice from the hard freeze the night before still clung to all the NW branches.|
|Obstacles? What obstacles?|
|Can you say "perfect day"|
|She's a REAL trail runner now! Took her first fall on the trail. I only wish I could fall that gracefully. Thankfully, no cuts or scraps. She got right up and kept on running!|
