Fun bike ride today. 37miles and 4300ft of climbing. I love living in Colorado! Leave your doorstep, ride to the middle of breath-taking-nowhere, and return home within several hours! It's an incredible escape!
I'm in Salida tonight; a small-ish mountain town with super nice people. I decided to go for a short run and end up at the restaurant where I'd eat dinner. I ran around town a little and then up to the restaurant, and as I was running, folks would see a runner in the cold and say,
"Way to get out there in the cold!"
"Good job, girl!"
I had 5 different verbal kudos! It was almost more exciting than the Olympics! :)
Brrr! One of the coldest workouts I've had in a while! 6 degrees with windchill if you were standing still --I can tell you, that number's a lot lower going 25 miles per hour downhill on your bike!!
