Walker Ranch

My legs and lungs are coming back quickly and my head remains stable in it's motivation. I decided to run Walker Ranch this morning after more than 2 years away. Kind of lame because it's very close to home and one of my favorite runs. Just 7.4 miles with ~1700ft of gain but it's deceptive. I've heard it described as Escher-esque as it seems you're always climbing. Beautiful trail loop that butts up to the back side of the Flatirons in Boulder. I timed it at 1:24 today which isn't stellar. I've run it in 53:xx clock-wise and averaged 1:09 for 5 laps back in 2012. It's motivating to consider working back to that fitness.
 The best part though was that my knee felt 100%.
 The week so far. 12400 ft of climbing on the bike between Monday and Tuesday and 1677ft on Walker today.
Strava proof.

The name I'm using on Strava is that of a fictional game warden who's the protagonist in C.J. Box's- Joe Pickett series of books.
So it's Joe Pickett.
