David Roche continues his great writing... his latest post is excellent.
I met up with Scott Jaime for a run on Mt Falcon in Morrison. The trail climbs next to the Red Rocks amphitheater which was cool. Even cooler is that Scott has gone to a White Zombie concert there... one of my all time favorite bands. We started much faster than I anticipated so I was sucking wind for the first few miles and even asked if we could stop so I could catch my breath. Scott was talking quite normal and relaxed so I was bracing for a hard run. We relaxed after the first climb though and chatted the rest of the 15 miles. Good conversation with a great runner! 3012ft of climbing on excellent single track.
And a new 50 miler (Western States qualifier) in Lakewood...The Bear Chase. This looks good to me. 3600ft of climbing which is exactly what my first 50 miler had. No glissading or hiking silly terrain.
